What is Markdown?
by Gene Wilburn

"Markdown is easy to learn and to use. For instance, surrounding text in asterisks *like this* will produce like this in the converted document. To bold text an entry you use two asterisks, e.g. **bold text**. Other attributes are similarly easy.
For those of us who like writing with a minimalist editor, Markdown and MultiMarkdown provide the best of both worlds—plain text with word-processing attributes when needed."
