I should add that as a consumer of Haddock documentation I can testify that fancier styling (in whatever format) would be of little benefit to _me_. What I need is more plain text and more examples.
To be perfectly honest, most of the time when looking at a Haddock page, I end up clicking on the Source button because there are things I need to know that are in the source but not the documentation. So I do agree that markup that doesn't get in the way of a _reader_ who is looking at the source code is an excellent thing. I say this as someone who had to read some Java today and ended up stuffing it through a comment stripper so that I could easily find what I needed to find. This thread is not about the "visually lightweight" aspect of Markdown. That's a good thing. No argument there. The thread is about how well documented the notation should be. _______________________________________________ Haskell-Cafe mailing list Haskell-Cafe@haskell.org http://www.haskell.org/mailman/listinfo/haskell-cafe
