I'm fairly late to the game (and I wrote a C markdown before I
started reading this list, so I'm not exactly in the mainstream) but
the syntax described on humanized seems incredibly noisy. Wouldn't
the editorial corrections markup fit better as a footnote?
I'd think that something like [text](ed: change -- why), like so:
They called to say that [they're](ed: was `their` -- be
careful with "their" and "they're") coming over in
[a](ed: was `an` -- `an` is only before a vowel) quarter-hour.
might be a little more readable than the thicket of 's that
Mr. Raskin proposed.
