Html `mark` no longer works


#1

I’ve asked on github whether it’d be possible to support tne ==mark== syntax in Markdown, here:

Sometimes I’d just used bold text instead, sometimes I used the <mark> HTML tag.

But I’ve recently noticed it no longer works: while initially it worked okay (even though the text highlight color was the one that highlights search results, which is suboptimal), now it just renders the <mark></mark> tags as text.

Was this done on purpose, or is it a bug?


#2

HTML tags have been disabled to prevent this security issue: https://github.com/laurent22/joplin/issues/500

I guess the replacement would indeed be to support the ==mark== syntax.
