Note that setting the start number like this isn't a typical Markdown feature.
If you really feel the need to format a post that way, this can be circumvented/prevented by1:
- Inserting a backslash (
\) between the number and the period
- Adding something at the beginning of the line that will not be visibly displayed, e.g.,
$ $(empty MathJax) or
372021. Here are three
$ $9001. lines in which
90909. I avoid lists
