I figured it was probably possible. I have only taken a reasonably
quick look at PHP Markdown Extra, and the basic documentation doesn't
mention this. Thanks for the info.

I was wondering why the list seemed to be such a recent creation.

Has anyone considered moving the list from mailman to Google Groups?
They aren't perfect, but there is (unsurprisingly) very good search
functionality. I feel a little silly suggesting this as a brand new
list member, but it seemed relevant to the discussion...
