The Discount processor does not currently process Markdown inside of
HTML tags. It's something I'll look into correcting, but for now only
the MultiMarkdown processor will handle it. Both processors will be
updated in the near future.
BTW, just curious… it seems that GitHub itself uses cmark-gfm rather than Discount, which it seems leads to some discrepancies between how Marked and GitHub render a document. (I’ve confirmed this locally via grip.) Are you considering integrating cmark-gfm into Marked?
