I've noticed that when you try to spoiler a list

Forgive me if this is old news, but I've never encountered this problem before.

    This is a terrible blow to the many people who use the list tags on a daily basis.

    The problem is that the BBcode is acting like HTML should.

    The spoiler tag is acting as an inline element, whereas the list is a block-level element. Inline elements only apply to elements that are on the same line block, as the name suggests. Block level elements like paragraphs, lists and divs are meant to inherit down until the element is closed..

    Just like it's not valid html to do this:
    <span>
    <ul>
    [*]text
    [/list]
    </span>
    

    In this case you'd have to put the span tag in the middle of each list item. So, in the case of the BBcode here you'd have to put it inside the list declaration..

    Man I'm not very good at describing things..

    Then I submit that spoiler really ought to act as a block element, since it breaks paragraphs.

    Yep, this is a CSS issue, not BBCode.

    Isn't it a BBCode issue? If it's generating invalid CSS, it needs to be fixed to not do so.

    I know what the problem is! There are too many numbers! The computer has too many numbers in it and they are making it crazy!
