Bug: Marked2 v3 Does Not Export Lists Correctly to Word

Marked2 doesn't export numbered/bulleted lists correctly to Word. They are not a real list when I open the document in Word, and I'd have to reformat the entire thing.

The list formats are not correct and need to be completely reformatted in Word.

Expected:

I should be able to change indentation or add new list items to the .docx file and it should be recognized as a list.

I want the output I get in either:
ListExample_Marked_to_HTML_to_Word_SaveAs_Docx.docx
ListExample_multimarkdown_saveas_docx.docx

Actual:

It is not a list, it's just text. It doesn't get picked up as list in Word, so I can't easily add new items or indent without reformatting the entire document.

Workaround:

My current work around is to export as HTML from Marked2 or from Multimarkdown and then open the .html in Word and to save it as a .docx file.

I've attached some sample documents, all spawning from my ListExample.md file, so you can see the input/output.

    This is a known issue. RTF export is being rewritten and will function
    closer to Ulysses export in the future.

    Thanks,
