yoonique Markdown Plugin

yoonique[.net] Markdown Extra plugin

It converts Markdown[^1] syntax in your content to HTML.

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.

Markdown Extra[^2] is a special version of PHP Markdown implementing some features currently not available with the plain Markdown syntax.

The description on JED is written in Markdown syntax. You can see the HTML output on my site: [demo](
