I agree that this would be a wonderful extension. I use markdown a lot with other web-based apps.

This is definitely a plugin that I would use... a *lot*.

As long as I know it's not built in and buried in settings somewhere, I won't pursue it. I'll wait until things are working and I'm more comfortable before trying to make a plugin. :) Thanks.

It does not natively handle MD. A quick google did not yield any MD
extensions for RT.

It looks like there are JS MD editors - though I am not sure how much
effort it would take to make an extension that uses them. Perhaps just
a jquery call to change the textarea.
