between my "zen markup language'<br>
and "markdown", but i don't know<br>
which version of markdown to target.<br>
<br>
i'd think it'd be the "pandoc" version,<br>
and i understand that to be closest to<br>
"multimarkdown", but gruber has said<br>
he "disagrees" with "almost every part"<br>
of multimarkdown's syntax additions...<br>
<br>
specifically, on 2008/03/14, gruber said:<br>
&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;  I despise what you've done with Text::Markdown, <br>
&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;  which is to more or less make it an alias for <br>
&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;  MultiMarkdown, almost every part of which<br>
&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;  I&nbsp;  disagree with in terms of syntax additions.<br>
<br>
of course, on 2008/02/18, gruber also said:<br>
&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;  I could give a rip about formal specifications,<br>
&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;  truth be told.<br>
<br>
so i guess what he thinks doesn't matter,<br>
not if we wanna get all "formal" and such.<br>
<br>
then again, on 2009/02/27, gruber said:<br>
&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;  I never say never. Well, usually.<br>
<br>
and then he disappeared -- poof! -- from<br>
this listserve; no posts in over 2 years...<br>
<br>
whatever.&nbsp;  if anyone has any input, spit it.<br>
