I think you might be misunderstanding.  I am interested in there being 
a way for Markdown tags to include a class or id.

So the image tag you make right now is

![image](foo.jpg "optional title")

which outputs

<img src="foo.jpg" alt="image" title="optional title" />

I want a way to add a class to that within the Markdown syntax.  So the 
resulting output would be

<img src="foo.jpg" alt="image" title="optional title" class="foo_class" 

I've no good suggestions on how to implement something like this but I 
had been told at one point it was in plans for the future, and was 
wondering what the progress was.
