This editor is exactly what I was looking for. It has everything I need. I like Markdown because it allows save HTML input in form of text. that is why Markdown is used on sites like GitHub, Stackoverflow, and other internet monsters.

I strongly recommend this editor.

Although there are some desired features like disable H1 and H2 or image upload, this editor do not reserve less than 5 stars.
