Markdown list with date

Hey there,

a client of mine has recently run into an inconvenience with Markdown. He wanted to write a few dates like that:

"29. march: event title 1"
"12. april: event title 2"
"25. april: event title 3"
“03. may: event title 4”

Markdown, or Kirbytext, thinks this is a list. Even this topic markdown editor is like that—that’s why I put it in quotation marks. This is the result in Kirby:

  • march: event title 1
  • april: event title 2
  • april: event title 3
  • may: event title 4

How do I prevent this? An easy solution, but still not exactly what my client wants, is to write:

29.03: event title 1
12.04: event title 2
25.04: event title 3
03.05: event title 4

But there must be a better solution I think. Can’t Markdown differentiate between continuous numbers and dates?

From the markdown docs:

It’s worth noting that it’s possible to trigger an ordered list by accident, by writing something like this:

1986. What a great season.
In other words, a number-period-space sequence at the beginning of a line. To avoid this, you can backslash-escape the period:

1986\. What a great season.

Wow, thank you! Seems like I overlooked this.
