it ends up that there has been a markdown-savvy<BR>
display-in-real-time app for a couple months now,<BR>
by the name of "macchiato", coded by a college kid.<BR>

so...<BR>
<BR>
it's lion-savvy.&nbsp;  (indeed, it _requires_ lion to run.)<BR>
<BR>
it's overpriced ($20), especially considering that<BR>

<BR>
but it's interesting that it even exists, not to mention<BR>
that nobody here seemed to know about it quite yet...<BR>
