Formatting issues

On issues I had with [this](http://lesswrong.com/lw/3ku/choose_to_be_happy/39h3) post.

I was addressing a post which had numbered paragraphs, but wanted to break a reply to one paragraph into several while still being easy to follow. So I titled each with a letter (1.a, 1.b, 1.c.)

What I got was this:

1.a.

1.b. (should be 1.b.)

1.c. (should be 1.c.)

2. (should be 2)

3. (should be 3)

etc.

When I tried removing the period between the letter and number (1a, 1b, 1c), what I got was this:

1a

1b

1c

2. (should be 2, aligned the same)

3. (should be 3)

I can't figure out how to fix this. Any ideas?

 

Less important:

I started a paragraph with a bracketed quotation ["like this"], and included a link later on. When I posted, the quote extended up to the beginning of the first bracket... which apparently I'm unable to reproduce, but in any case

["having a bracketed quotation"] screws up a [link](http://lesswrong.com/lw/3ku/choose_to_be_happy/39h3) which comes later.

Fairly easy to fix (swapped the brackets around the quotations for parentheses) but still seems to be a glitch.
