&gt;&gt; I&#39;d tend to go for something even simpler:<br>
&gt;&gt;<br>
&gt;&gt;        Some text 30 May 2011 more text.<br>
&gt;&gt;<br>
&gt;&gt;<br>
&gt;&gt;<br>
&gt;&gt;        *[30 May 2011]: 2011-05-30 15:00 -07:00<br>
&gt;&gt;<br>
&gt;&gt; Basically, why do we need to force brackets in the text at all? Also, why<br>
&gt;&gt; force the writer to use &#39;T&#39; as a time separator and strictly follow to the<br>
&gt;&gt; rules of HTML date syntax? It&#39;s much more readable without the &#39;T&#39;.<br>
&gt;&gt; Reformatting it to HTML&#39;s liking should be pretty trivial.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; I love this idea. I&#39;m unfamiliar with PHP Markdown Extra&#39;s abbreviation<br>
&gt; syntax (I&#39;ll read up on it); building upon an established convention sounds<br>
&gt; very sensible to me.<br>
<br>
</div>I&#39;ll have to say I like this as well. It hadn&#39;t occurred to me that<br>
like the abbreviation syntax, we don&#39;t need to mark up the text at<br>
all.<br>
<br>
Regarding the time v. datetime, I picked datetime because that is the<br>
name of the html attribute the same value would be assigned to. But<br>
time is certainly shorter. Maybe you won&#39;t need either as Michel<br>
suggests.<br>
