Vuepress is a great static site generator, has many features. One of them is line highlighting:

This is a great feature, for example, you'd use {5} to specify line 5, {12-17} to specify lines 12
through 17. The example below highlights lines 5 and 6, 12 through 17, and line 19:


... code ...


Unfortunately Marked 2 completely breaks when using this feature in Markdown files.

Could you add this feature? Or at least fix Marked 2 so it won't completely break? :)

Thanks for a great app.

    Sorry, line highlighting isn't something that Marked is going to
    support, and the syntax is well outside the range of what could safely
    be expected for a Markdown language identifier. That makes it quite
    complex to work around the errors it causes, but I'll add it to the
    debugging list.
