By "guide to Markdown", do you mean a syntax reference? You could link directly to the syntax page rather than the overall general Markdown page:
What do you mean by "Google's design"? Can you post one or more links illustrating what you mean? Are you talking about aesthetics? Usability?
If you expect a particular kind of target audience you may want to write your own guide. For example, if you know 90% of them will just use the very basic features, then you could explain those briefly and point them to Gruber's page for the rest.

A document, or a design rather, that tries to find a common ground. Something universal, of which I believe Google's design is a perfect example.
