Should more properly be called "hasktag bugs" now, but whatever.

1 Paragraphs

Use of the tag seems to merge paragraphs in some circumstances:

Here is a paragraph with
code
in it. Here is another, distinct paragraph, with more
code
in it.

Here is a paragraph with no code.

2 Opening comments without closing them

When you open a comment inside <hask> tags without closing it, the parser breaks. Observe:

Oh no:
{-
I broke it!

Here's some nicely-formatted code:

id :: a -> a
id x = const x x
 
const :: a -> b -> a
const x _ = id x

which is now ruined. Interestingly this text is fine.

Perhaps it's only paragraphs with
any
code that are broken. Closing comments on their own inside comments seem to have no effect:
-}
this is not fixed

3 The problem

doesn't even stop at section boundaries:

error :: String -> a
error str = error (error str)
