What about <cite>?
Some of us use it quite frequently, and I would love to see it available in
a Markdown syntax instead of literal HTML embedding:
According to Mill's <cite>On Liberty</cite>, ...
Email convention differs ...
According to Mill's "On Liberty", ...
According to Mill's *On Liberty*, ...
According to Mill's On Liberty, ...
And it seems Textile uses
According to Mill's ??On Liberty??, ...
which strikes me as pretty unelegant. Something like
According to Mill's ~On Liberty~, ...
seems a possibility, but it really doesn't matter to me.
I realize Markdown doesn't intend on replicating each and every HTML element
in its own syntax, but against the generally uncommon inlines (<ins>, <del>,
and <q> come to mind) or the ubiquitous <span> (primarily used for CSS
hooks), I think it at least merits consideration.
What do you think?
