Write Better Markdown

Brett Terpstra:

However, I love that Markdown has been extended and tweaked for specific purposes, and I take a “personal responsibility” stance on the syntax. As long as users are aware of potential compatibility issues, they can decide for themselves how much of a mess to make when working with any given processor.

This post isn’t about proposing any standard or new flavors, it’s just about common sense guidelines that allow you to work with any processor.

This is a really useful post for anyone looking to dig deeper into Markdown (or even start learning it).
