Michel is awesome and so is PHP Markdown (Extra).
The only problem I know about is that certain, very long documents will fail completely.
IIRC, this was a side-effect of its PCRE parsing — a bug or limitation of the regex implementation in PHP.
Max, are you using a grammar, as has been discussed on this list recently, or regexes? That is, might your parser be susceptible to the same bug?
