Marked freezes

Marked is unable to process the following text. If I take the attached file (or a larger file that contains this text; I got it narrowed to this), Marked freezes, the process 'multimarkdown' starts taking up huge amounts of my CPU, and the text is not converted. Similar sections of text converted fine, though.

nvALT also chokes on it, but Markdownr can convert it.


133. Indirect Reflexives.

In a subordinate clause the reflexive and its possessive adjective often refer back to the subject of the main clause. They are then called indirect reflexives:

dat negōtium Gallīs utī certiōrem faciant, he directs the Gauls to inform him, cf. B.G. II.2

NOTE. The reflexive, sūī, sibi, sē, refers to the third person only. For the first and second persons the personal pronouns are used as reflexives, thus:

laudō , I praise myself
laudās , you praise yourself
laudat , he praises himself
laudāmus nōs, we praise ourselves
laudātis vōs, your praise yourselves
laudant , they praise themselves

    Weirdly enough, it seems to display just fine on this site. The original markdown formatted text should be in the attached file.

    Your file attachment didn't come through, I think because the first comment was marked as spam. Could you try again with just the file attachment? Thanks!

    Nevermind, tested with the text you pasted and you're right. The multimarkdown executable can't even handle it. I'll post a ticket on the MultiMarkdown site for this, as it's beyond Marked's control if I can't even process it directly from the command line.

    It's quite likely the UTF-8 characters, but Marked/MultiMarkdown usually handle those fine. I'll keep you posted.

    This is an excerpt of a much larger document, and sections with the
    same characters have worked fine. (I have an example of something that
    converted with no problems below my signature. I couldn't narrow down
    what it was about the pasted excerpt that made it different from ones
    like this.



    ####97. Accusative of Place Whither.
    Place whither is regularly expressed by the accusative with the
    preposition **ad** or **in**; but with names of towns and the word
    **domus**, *home*, the preposition is omitted:

    >>***in Italiam*** **profectus est**, *he set out for Italy*, B.G. II.35

    >>***Rōmam ad senātum*** **vēnī**, *I came to Rome to the senate*

    >>***Bibracte*** **īre contendit**, *he hastened (to go) to Bibracte*, B.G. I.23
    >>***domum*** **suam quisque revertitur**, *each returns to his home*, cf. B.G. II.10

    This turned out to be an issue with the bold and italics rather than a UTF issue as I had assumed. Fletcher has found a fix and the next version of Marked should fly through your files without a hitch.
