I have a markdown file with an SVG tag (attached), and Marked doesn't seem to render the SVG. Not sure if that is intentional or just not a supported HTML tag.

    It actually does render it, except that when MultiMarkdown is the
    processor it tends to convert characters like " and < to html entities,
    thus destroying it as markup. The easy solution is to wrap it in a div
    and turn off "process markdown inside of html" in Processor preferences.

    So your document would just include:


    The additional <div> won't alter any export from Marked or anywhere
    else, so it's harmless.

    Thanks -- still can't get it to work even after adding a `div` tag

    Do you happen to have "preserve line breaks in paragraphs" enabled in
    Processor preferences?

    Also, if using the MultiMarkdown processor, try toggling "Process
    Markdown in HTML" and see if that makes a difference.
