mkd-extensions -- Extensions to the Markdown text formatting syntax
This version of markdown has been extended in a few ways by extending
existing markup, creating new markup from scratch, and borrowing markup
from other markup languages.
Markdown embedded images have been extended to allow specifying the
dimensions of the image by adding a new argument =/height/x/width/ to the
The new image syntax is
![alt text](image =/height/x/width/ "title")
Five pseudo-protocols have been added to links
id: The alt text is marked up and written to the output, wrapped with
<a id=id> and </a>.
The alt text is marked up and written to the output, wrapped with
<span class=class> and </span>.
raw: The title is written -- with no further processing -- to the
output. The alt text is discarded.
abbr: The alt text is marked up and written to the output, wrapped with
<abbr title=abbr> and </abbr>.
lang: The alt text s marked up and written to the output, wrapped with
<span lang=lang> and </span>.
The markdown source document can have a 3-line Pandoc header in the
which will be made available to the mkd_doc_title(), mkd_doc_author(),
and mkd_doc_date() functions.
A definition list item is defined as
(that is a =, followed by text, another =, a newline, 4 spaces of intent,
and then more text.)
Alternatively, definition list items are defined as
(This is the format that PHP Markdown Extra uses.)
Stylesheets may be defined and modified in a <style> block. A style
block is parsed like any other block level html; <style> starting on
column 1, raw html (or, in this case, css) following it, and either
ending with a </style> at the end of the line or a </style> at the
beginning of a subsequent line.
Be warned that style blocks work like footnote links -- no matter where
you define them they are valid for the entire document.
The rules for emphasis are changed so that a single _ will not count as a
emphasis character if it's in the middle of a word. This is primarily
for documenting code, if you don't wish to have to backquote all code
Alphabetic lists (like regular numeric lists, but with alphabetic items)
are supported. So:
c. an alphabetic
PHP Markdown Extra tables are supported; input of the form
text | text
The dashed line can also contain : characters for formatting; if a : is
at the start of a column, it tells discount to align the cell contents to
the left; if it's at the end, it aligns right, and if there's one at the
start and at the end, it centers.
A strikethrough syntax is supported in much the same way that ` is used
to define a section of code. If you enclose text with two or more
tildes, such as ~~erased text~~ it will be written as <del>erased
text</del>. Like code sections, you may use as many ~ as you want, but
there must be as many starting tildes as closing tildes.
markdown extra-style footnotes
PHP Markdown Extra footnotes are supported. If a footnote link begins
with a ^, the first use of that footnote will generate a link down to the
bottom of the rendered document, which will contain a numbered footnote
with a link back to where the footnote was called.
