Markdown newline issue

I have a simple XML markdown…

  <dependency>
    <groupId>org.junit.jupiter</groupId>
    <artifactId>junit-jupiter-api</artifactId>
    <version>5.5.2</version>
    <scope>test</scope>
  </dependency>

When compiled, BLANK LINES newlines are being added which is causing the display to have extra blank lines too.
