I am using the mylin ant wikitext-to-html task with the MediaWiki language. I need to put several filesystem paths in a table cell, so I have been trying to use bullet points to clearly separate them. However it has not produced the result I wanted.

The code below demonstrates the problem I am having.
Input markup:

{| border="1"
|*Test
*Test
|}


Output:

<table border="1"><tr><td>*Test</td></tr></table>


Desired result:

<table border="1"><tr><td><ul><li>Test</li><li>Test</li></ul></td></tr></table>


I believe the markup I use displays as I intended in wikipedia, though I realise this doesn't necessarily mean it should display the same way using mylin. I don't mind if I don't use bullets, as long as I can put the paths on separate lines. I have tried using <br />, various whitespace, and internal tables amongst others, none of which work as I expected.

I am new to the wikitext-to-html task, but I have tried to use the docs at
http://help.eclipse.org/helios/index.jsp?topic=/org.eclipse. mylyn.wikitext.help.ui/help/Mylyn%20WikiText%20User%20Guide. html
and
http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Tables
but these have not been very helpful.

Thank you for your help.
