That's a regression in PHP Markdown. If you look not so distantly in
the past (1.0.1c and beyond), the output was the same as in the Perl
version. You indeed found a bug I introduced while moving to the
object-oriented hash-everything architecture, thank you. Time for me
to add a test-case.

And while PHP Markdown use John's Perl implementation as a reference,
that doesn't necessarily mean that's the right thing to do. But until
that changes, I'll probably follow what is done in Perl for the sake
of compatibility.
