I would assume this is doable in the short-term using a plug-in to
convert the markdown document into HTML. Such a plug-in needs to
include some facility to apply style sheets or some front end to ask
the end-user what styling they want. (Or else just pick some styling
and hard-wire it into the output, not recommended.)
