can be 1 line long only, right?

Actually, you can also use multiple paragraphs (in contrast to "lines") in a list.

  • To do this, simply indent the first line of the second paragraph by one space (or more, how you like it).

    I like this more than breaking lines by spaces, because the paragraph breaks make the text easier to read.

  • Here is the source code I used for this (excluding the source code itself):

Nope, looks like you can have multiple lines

  • line 1 of item one
    line 2 of item one
  • Line 1 of item 2
  • Line 1 of item 3
    Line 2 of item 3
    Line 3 of item 3
  • Line 1 of item 4

To do this I just type <space><space> at the end of lines that should be under the same bullet or number. Then type <enter> and type the next line. It also appears to work for numbered lists.

  1. Line 1 of number 1
    Line 2 of number 1
  2. Line 1 of number 2
  3. Line 1 of number 3
    Line 2 of number 3
  4. Line 1 of number 4
