Example 2.4.  Sequence of Mappings in the YAML spec fails when it is at the root level:

@startyaml
  -
    name: Mark McGwire
    hr:   65
    avg:  0.278
  -
    name: Sammy Sosa
    hr:   63
    avg:  0.288
@endyaml

Nor the compacted form:

Although it works fine as a nested item:

PS I will assume there's no intention to support flow-style, so I won't raise cases for spec examples 2.5 or 2.6.

Thanks for the report. Your examples should be working with last beta http://beta.plantuml.net/plantuml.jar and on the online server.

As you have stated, we are not going to support flow-style right now. Let's focus on basic first :-)
