I should really create a webpage for MDTest.

Latest release:

Mirror of my git repository (which is more up to date).

MDTest is a testsuite system I build for testing Markdown parsers. It
contains all the tests from John's MarkdownTest (the Markdown
testsuite), in additions to another testsuite I made for testing PHP
Markdown which should probably apply to any Markdown parser (the PHP
Markdown testsuite) and other tests for PHP Markdown Extra.

It was also built as a simple performance measurement tool. With the
time it takes to process each test and some statistics, it's a lot
easier to see how a parser performs with various inputs, as well as to
compare parsers one against another.

There is also an XML/HTML normalization system so the output can be
compared ignoring insignificant whitespace and meaningless differences
in output documents.
