Marking Up with Markdown

Since I began using computers in the early nineties, I’ve gone through five different word processors: DeskMate, AppleWorks, NeoOffice, OpenOffice, and LibreOffice. I’ve shuffled through as many computers and operating systems, from DOS to Mac OS X. I know — very well — the pain of incompatible file formats, starting in college when my professors sent me commented Word documents that AppleWorks couldn’t read.
