I've fixed the reStructuredText parser's handling of enumerated list
items to deal with the following edge cases:
- This text is parsed as a section title::
1. This is the heading of section one
- This text is parsed as an ordinary paragraph:
A. Einstein was a really
However, ambiguity cannot be avoided if the paragraph consists of
only one line. This text is parsed as an enumerated list item::
A. Einstein was a really smart dude.
If a single-line paragraph begins with text identical to an
enumerator ("A.", "1.", "(b)", "I)", etc.), the first character will
have to be escaped in order to have the line parsed as an ordinary
\A. Einstein was a really smart dude.
The code, spec, and test suite have been updated. The code change
consists of checking the second line of each enumerated list item for
validity, in the parser's new ``Body.is_enumerated_list_item`` method.
Thanks to Jeremy Hylton and Dmitry Jemerov for their bug reports.
In addition, I implemented the "line-block" and "parsed-literal"
directives. See http://docutils.sf.net/tools/test.html#line-blocks
for an example of the former; docs in
