Wow! I didn't know MultiMarkdown, but that is a great hint. Looks very
promising and capable. Thank you!

The Markdown entry on Wikipedia
doesn't point to
yet. But it probably should.

I use Pandoc for my HaskellDown, because it is a Haskell library. It also
is very powerful and impressive, and in my limited experience, I found it
very stable and more reliable than e.g. PHP Markdown. Actually, I don't
apply any of its nice features (like automatic toc generation) at all in the
default markdownToHaskell converter, I just use all the Pandoc default
settings, for the sake of simplicity. But I agree, Tommy, I, too, didn't
find Pandoc itself easily accessible.

Thank you, again.
