There seem to be some formatting problems when emboldened text immediately precedes a <br> tag:

  • The space before the <br> tag *shouldn't be needed,*
    but it is.

  • The space before the <br> tag shouldn't be needed,
    but it is.

Here's an example where the emboldening extends onto the following line:

  • If T is a type definition where Name is a variable*
    and Type is a *type
    , then:
    Name :: Type yields:
    Rep(T) = { ann_type, LINE, [Rep(Name), Rep(Type)] }

This is probably a "Feature request" ... The markup is defined in EditingShorthand as
You can follow the closing bold, italic, or other (* _ __ = ==) indicator with normal punctuation, such as commas and full stops.

It's worked this way for a very long time. Changes like this have a risk of breaking existing topics with the new interpretation.

Perhaps, but I can't imagine anyone wanting the current behavior. So, why not take a look and see what's involved?
