Markdown does not always seem to work

Recently, I faced some issue with markdown. When I write text in the following way then markdown of ">" isn't working (was working earlier).

<hr/>
>

> hello

I faced some problem with "[] ()" also. I inserted a space here because the markdown system is working now. Here is the problem. I tried to add more markdown after #bug also. It was not working. You can check with a "Suggest edit", if it is working for you or not.


I faced the same issue with bolding also. In this answer, I tried bold using "****" instead of "bold tag". But, it wasn't working.

What is going on here? Why is markdown sometimes working and sometimes not?

If you mix HTML and Markdown, you have to clearly separate them, which means leaving a clear blank line break between HTML and Markdown sections.

This works:

<hr/>

**Bold text**

This doesn't:

<hr/>
**Bold text**

and likewise for any other tags.
