BitBucket's documentation says that they support a limited set of HTML tags for READMEs, but they never say what tags. I'm trying to embed an image using the <img> tag for control over image size, which Markdown doesn't support, but it shows up as the text for the HTML, ie. as <img src='mypicture.jpeg' width='100' height='100'> instead of the picture.
It seems that Bitbucket Markdown does not support html-entities like , and literally displays it as , not as non-breaking space.
This is really awkward: I wrote a huge Readme.md with hundreds of s, and in IntelliJ IDEA preview all works as expected. But on Bitbucket the layout displays as totally broken :(
Is there a plan/issue to fix this?
I am considering moving my repo over to Github from having to deal with this issue. It is unfortunate that re-sizing an image in a repo is not supported by Bitbucket. IMO, resizing an image is an essential & basic feature to include in a repo readme. I will explore other options, but have already wasted 20 minutes scouring the web for something that should be a simple add on.
I always struggle with how bitbucket interprets markdown as well. My main concern is there is no way to check what it will look like other than actually push the changes. Not even https://atlaskit.atlassian.com/examples/editor/editor-markdown-transformer/markdown-transformer consistent with how bitbucket displays markdown. Is there any other tool I can use?
