To reproduce:

  1. Open the attached README.md file using Marked 2 (2.5.10 / 930)

Expected:

File opens and renders.

Actual:

Window gets stuck in "Loading…" w/ indeterminate progress indicator.

Discussion:

At first, I thought the initial line might be the problem, but I tried eliminating it, and that did not resolve the issue.

The document renders as expected using the Dingus:

    Hey Greg,

    There are multiple syntax irregularities that Marked's MultiMarkdown
    implementation seems to be choking on. If you switch the processor to
    Discount (GFM) (under Preferences->Processor) it appears to render fine.
    I'll have to look into what's causing the hang, as MMD itself processes
    the file fine on the command line.

    -Brett
