+   *\-t*      each tab will display as...
+   *\-v*     displays control and no...

This is what I got(note the asterisk been kept as origin):

And I have tried other markdown editor like this and IDEA plugin, they all work as expected.

I am not sure if I miss anything?

BTW, the template I use just put the plain content out:

	<div class="post-description">

This is most likely fixed in the lates Hugo source (and in the next Hugo release). I was about to post about it.
