Unexpected change in list behavior

Reported by Ben Bleything | November 22nd, 2008 @ 02:10 AM

I came across this while converting a bunch of existing Textile content from one publishing engine to another. In RedCloth 4.x, unordered lists must start at the beginning of the line:

# => 4.1.1

RedCloth.new( " * notice the leading space" ).to_html
=> "* notice the leading space"

RedCloth.new( "* no leading space this time!" ).to_html
# => "<ul>\n\t<li>no leading space this time!</li>\n</ul>"

whereas with 3.0.4, they could be indented:

# => 3.0.4

RedCloth.new( " * foo" ).to_html
# => <ul>\n\t<li>foo</li>\n\t</ul>

Ideally, we'd get the ability to indent lists back, so as not to break compatibility with documents written in the "old" style.
