Commented text at the very beginning of a text file shows

If I outcomment text at the very beginning of a file, e.g. <!--comment-->, it will still show in the preview that Marked 2 creates. Normally the preview will not show outcommented text. Is this a bug or intentional? And can the behaviour be switched off?

    Appears to be a bug. Likely something to do with the way I allow multimarkdown metadata to be commented at the beginning of a file, but I'll need to look into it. It doesn't happen if the Preferences->Processor is set to Discount.

    You can avoid it by simply putting a blank line in the first line of the document for now, though.

    Thanks, I appreciate the quick reply! I'm going to use Discount for now and will switch back to MMD as soon as the bug is fixed.

    FYI, I have this fixed up for the next update. Not sure when it will be ready for release, but probably within a couple weeks. Closing this for now.
