Dr Andus, thanks for the heads up on the resources, and also for bringing my attention to this (much) older post of mine. I’ll report back soon.

My fave markdown editor was not mentioned in links, most useful alongside bonsai natara. There are a couple of other emerging formats similar to markdown, but I still like markdown best, however they might evolve to take over.

The article doesn’t mention Markdown’s major deficiency. There is no Markdown standard and implementers have developed lots of variants that are incompatible with each other.  So interoperability is largely a crapshoot.

We got a start a few years ago on developing a Markdown standard via W3C to cut through this interop Gordion’s Knot, but couldn’t persuade a single implementer to participate.

That was largely a replay of an earlier effort to standardize wiki syntax. Implementers just don’t care enough about interoperability to invest the effort required to develop and implement a standard.

Because of user requests, we recently implemented Markdown export in NoteCase Pro, with options to handle up to four varying parameters. But for my personal use, I am boycotting Markdown because of implementers’ refusal to collaborate on developing and implementing a standard aimed at interoperability of implementations.  It’s pure vendor lock-in B.S. mixed with a dash of developer laziness.
