Thanks, filed here:

I opened Zim in English to get the right names of things, not like the
mess I wrote here!

I was expecting it to be parsed when it was submitted as it was not
parsed when I entered the text.

You are right, but here is a distinction. For one, the user does not
see this as a paste operation. For another, the parsing of [] at the
beginning of a line as an indicator of what the line represents is
different than parsing arbitrary text in the middle of the line.
Lastly, my previous sentence is hair-splitting and really it would be
best if each individual parse could be configured as per the user's

After playing with it some more I see how it works, it is coincidence
that I was also using numbers to test! Here is an RFE for what, in my
opinion, would be a better solution:

I know, I am guilty of not testing! You know how much I love and
appreciate Zim, I only wish that I could have gotten around to testing
it first. It seems that each release I have _less_ time on my hands,
not more! I seriously respect you Jaap and other Zim contributors for
the time that you make to work on this excellent application.
