Auto Transform Text

The downside of that:  How do you change it?


Two approaches I've seen:

1.  On stack exchange they have an editor that makes you type markdown in
one field, and it shows it formatted in another field.  This works fairly

2.  There is an extension, "Markdown Here" available for both Chrome and
Firefox that allows you to type MD and there is a toggle that switches
between marked up verson and fancy text.  Works quite well in gmail/chrome.
