I came to all this from the world of Wikis - TWiki MoinMoin and others.
Completely different markup and facilities.  And lots of entrenchment
and 'mark-up wars'.

I'm comfortable with either but seem to use Textile for composition and
Markdown for posting in from e-mail.  If you think about it, non-html
type email ends up suing things like underlining for 'titles' ad starts
or hashes lists and simple * and _.  Or, and > for quotes.
So posting email in is a natural.

That's when I'm not doing pretty involved stuff in raw html!
Ignorance is never out of style. It was in fashion yesterday, it is the
rage today, and it will set the pace tomorrow.
