<!-- Adrift/Runner doesn't seem to ignore spacing rules when reading comment tags -->

I have a list that outputs a list of object names from a group, and i had a alt desc tab on one of the tasks in this output which had a comment line set with restriction of Debug=1, append to prev. When this variable is set to 1 the alt desc with the comment line (with no other text or spacing outside or before the comment tag) is read by Adrift/Runner it indented my output list after the first output of list. I set the debug variable to 0 and the list outputted properly with no indention, which shows Adrift isn't ignoring spacing or at least affecting displaying of other text.

If i move this comment tag to the main default output below the initial output line i have it puts a gap between each output.

I had suspected the comment tag had this behaviour other times where i had more spacing than i wanted at other times as well.

So ive listed this as a bug, because ideally no spacing considerations or after effects should come into factor with comment tags.

Please delete this or leave it here in case someone else feels this is a bug.
I have discovered that its where you place the cursor after what text is suppose to display and make sure the cursor is not left at the bottom after the comment tag block, which indeed leaves a gap.
