Is it possible to display a numbered list that is followed by a code block? It seems that an answer with this structure breaks the formatting applied via Markdown.
Here is an example to illustrate the point, with the broken formatting:
We will have a first point
And a second point as an alternative to the first
And finally a catch-all in case neither the of the first options apply
# echo "I intend that this four-line block should be displayed as code" echo "But it isn't."
