When quoting, lists work fine. For instance

> A list of
>
>  * one, nay
>  * two
> items

becomes

A list of

  • one, nay
  • two items

But if I do the same with the spoiler tag it fails, namely

>! A list of
>!
>!  * one, nay
>!  * two
>! items

becomes

A list of * one, nay * two items

Is this a bug, or am I missing something?

Spoiler markup doesn't interact well with other markup. I believe this is in part by design: you shouldn't put too much content under spoiler markup. For example, it is deliberate that you can't put two consecutive paragraphs in spoiler markup.

If this is by design, it is a bad design (imho). –  Raphael May 9 '12 at 12:56
    
"By design" seems to imply that it is intentionally broken this way. While the design as-is may lend itself towards breaks like this, I doubt it was intentional. –  Iszi Jan 15 '13 at 18:22
    
@Iszi I don't know if this particular case (lists in spoilers) is intentionally broken, but it is intentional that little effort is spent to make X in spoilers work. –  Gilles Jan 15 '13 at 19:07
