In MWE.md, it contains

<div class="Problem">

But when opened in MMDC, it is shown as


I tried it on MMDC 3 latest beta, and MMDC 2.9, and both gives the same result.

    The problem only occurs when the entire document "looks like" an HTML
    document. If everything is wrapped in <div>s, then it gets processed as
    an XML document to see if it is actually OPML.

    As long as part of your document is regular MultiMarkdown, it should
    open fine (and does for me). For example:

    <div class="Problem">

    This is regular text to prove it's a Markdown document.
