Changes to [EX] Tags

I've changed the apperance of the EX tags to:
Senior state department officials who announced the decision said it was still not clear who was responsible for the “targeted attacks” which have caused injuries including various permanent hearing loss, brain injuries, dizziness, tinnitus, problems with balance, visual impairment, headaches, fatigue, cognitive issues and difficulties sleeping.
Content from External Source
This is intended to make things a bit easier to read, moving the "content from external source" to the bottom right, and generally tightening things up, and adding appropriate padding.

Seems fine, but as always any change might break things, so let me know if you see anything odd.

One of the things about the ex tags, as well as quotes, is that they generate their own line breaks, meaning you have to kind of 'manually manage' the appearance. Though I notice with this recent change the ex tags seem to be doing better (ie, only one line break instead of two).

Another issue arises when putting a bullet list in ex tags: if the content begins or ends with a bullet point, an extra point is generated outside the tags.

Can someone please tell me how I should use EX tags properly - ie, so that my url goes where it says "content from external source" above?

That's an [article=url].....[/article] tag, like

Article:
A precedent which now means that anyone who evades taxes, attempts to undermine an election, sexually assaults women, manipulates the value of their assets, uses state resources to enrich themselves or aids and abets the overthrow of a democratically elected government will be subject to investigation.
