I became interested in defining Markdown and made an earnest attempt at a
Markdown standard, or at least a less ambiguous syntax specification than 
the original.
The document is found at: <>.

Note that it's currently incomplete, but it should be enough for you to 
comment on it.  It defines a parsing algorithm that follows the behavior of 
the majority of Markdown implementations.
The Markdown comparer at <> helped me 
determine common behavior.

The project page is <>.
