    Unfortunately this is apparently becoming the norm here. There's
    off-topic stuff, fits and starts of conversations about
    forking/rewriting/expanding/standardizing markdown, and very
    occasional questions about usage or edge case problems.<br>
    <br>
    Fortunately (for me anyway) markdown "just works".<br>

              deaths come in threes...<br>
              <br>
              for me, it was these:<br>
              1.&nbsp; scott wannberg, los angeles poet, one of my favorite
              performers<br>
              2.&nbsp; michael hart, founder of project gutenberg, icon and

              3.&nbsp; steve jobs, seemingly the only guy who made stuff work
              correctly<br>
              <br>
              i'm sure that for others, dennis ritchie is on their list,

              <br>
              godspeed to all of these people, who are "heroes" just as
              much as<br>
              any firefighter or soldier, heroes of creativity and the
              imagination.<br>
              <br>
              and a hearty "chill out" to anyone who thinks this is
              "off-topic"...<br>

              ***<br>

              meanwhile, life goes on...<br>
              <br>
              it seems that fletcher finally received his app-store
              blessing, so<br>
              we can hope that we will see "multimarkdown composer"
              soon...<br>
              <br>
              which means i can come out with my little tool as
              well.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; :+)<br>
              <br>
              my editor uses z.m.l. (zen markup language), not markdown,
              but<br>
              it's close enough that you might want to take a look at it
              anyway.<br>
              <br>
              if anyone wants to "alpha-test" it, just let me know
              backchannel...<br>
              it's cross-platform to the mac (even very old ones), p.c.,
              and linux.<br>
