Moving to Markdown

I've been seeing markdown used more and more and decided to give it a try. (Ok this thing exists since 2004, it is about time I move!)
Markdown’s syntax is intended for one purpose: to be used as a format for writing for the web.
I do like wiki syntax and markdown is quite good enough for a lot my uses. Also, it is much easier than SGML-style or XML style DocBook (which I still like a lot) when it comes to teaching people on how to use them (I've seen people freaking out.) Give it a shot. It will improve your speed when it comes to write for the web in no time. Okay, one hour max. Also, check the WP-Markdown plugin. Install, Settings, Enable. Done. Don't forget the toolbar.
