the basics page: show, don't tell?

Right now output is done in encoded HTML. Have you considered showing 
leaving the HTML raw, so that browser users see what the result 
actually looks like. I think this would help break up the monotony of 
the page, it'd make the result easier to see/understand, and it would 
make the Basics page useful to people who don't know HTML (perhaps a 
large potential audience for Markdown).

The downside is that it'd make things like title's a little harder to 
understand and the styling of your page might confuse some.
