Good idea. It would suit me well.

Let’s make a list of all the attributes of all the HTML elements and decide what
other attributes we need.

Let’s make a list of all the HTML elements and decide what other elements we
need this for.


The only other attribute I see that could be used on markdown elements is
`style`, but I know what everybody will say :)

Classes and ids for blockquotes, code blocks and lists (and images?) could be
nice. And a way of specifying the size of images. Curly braces could be used for
this too, like this

    [image]: url "Title" {320x240}

or this:

    [alt text](url "Title" {320, 240})

What do you think?
