Markdown text markup
Markdown looks like it might be nicer than textile…
And now, for some formating tests.
Below is a blockquote (from DaringFireball):
Markdown is intended to be as easy-to-read and easy-to-write as is feasible.
Readability, however, is emphasized above all else. A Markdown-formatted document should be publishable as-is, as plain text, without looking like it’s been marked up with tags or formatting instructions. While Markdown’s syntax has been influenced by several existing text-to-HTML filters, the single biggest source of inspiration for Markdown’s syntax is the format of plain text email.
A Smaller Heading
Arbitrary HTML tags can also be used, such as span tags to set colours. Not that I’d do that of course.
- This is an item
- This is another item
A Really Small Heading
And these are:
- the first item
- the second item, and
- the third item
