I woke up with the following thought: I'm not so worried about the difference in markdown / wiki syntaxes
I think this is like language - there are many dialects of English American, English, Australian and so on - they differ but we understand each other. Then there is Swedish, Norwegian, Danish again different but in many ways similar. What I wondered was about code to convert random HTML to TW code and NOT the other way around. I know how to convert TW to HTML - this is what the system does all the time. It would be very nice to take any fragment of HTML and turn it into TW tiddlers This would involve partitioning (splitting big pages into smaller tiddlers) removing styling and guessing the structure Has anybody thought about this????
