    What if you could write (or edit) your next Wikipedia article in Markdown?

    Am I dreaming? Let's make it a reality. To start let's evolve the
Wikipedia Markup and add some Markdown goodies.

   See the Wikipedia Markup Cheetsheet for Text with Instructions
(.texti) [1] for a start.

   Thoughts? Comments?

   To get started let's quote Adam Michael Wood‏  from an answer on

> Text with Instructions (.texti) is not a good new format. It's just a mashup of two imperfect
> formats. It doesn't provide any real improvements to either wiki or md

> What is actually needed (but probably won't ever happen) is a version of markdown that
> provides the structure and semantics of .rst
