Using callout in HTML block won't render it

What I’m trying to do

I want to insert a callout block inside an HTML block so that I can put it in a pullet.

the problem is that it doesn’t get rendered and is displayed merely as text.

Things I have tried

This hasn’t changed.

Can you describe in a bit more detail what you are trying to do?

Putting infoboxes in a list, if that’s what you’re after, can be tricky at times, since you need to properly indent the quote characters used with the callout.

The following example does work in my setup:

- > [!info]+ My info box in a bullet  
  > Testing first line
  > Testing second line
- Next item

And displays as this:

You can’t directly embed a callout block inside an HTML block in markdown and then you can achieve your desired result by properly formatting the callout within a list.

For example

- > [!info]+ My info box in a bullet  
  > Testing first line
  > Testing second line
- Next item

Markdown doesn’t render inside HTML blocks. That’s not an Obsidian limitation, it’s how Markdown was designed. Daring Fireball: Markdown Syntax Documentation
