Chris Lott,

You missed my point entirely. I use VIM and IDEs to get around writing code.

My point is that MD is _not_ code. MD, unlike other systems, was meant to
nice in plain text.
The only minor requirement of MD is a monospaced font.

The only reason I need to see how MD renders is for that reason itself, to
ensure a smooth render.
