Hmm, it doesn’t look similar at all to me? Not even superficially
similar, but most importantly, it looks line-based. Markdown is
block-based. If you want another example of block-based, take a
look at the new-style PhpWiki markup. These let you do things
like put a code block inside a blockquote within a list item, or
heck, even things as simple as multi-paragraph list items.
Mediawiki markup, like many other wiki syntaxes, can’t express
that. Yours doesn’t look like it can either.
