     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.

   Image dimensions
     Markdown embedded images have been extended to allow specifying the
     dimensions of the image by adding a new argument =/height/x/width/ to the
     link description.

     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>.

   Pandoc headers
     The markdown source document can have a 3-line Pandoc header in the
     format of
         % title
         % author(s)
         % date
     which will be made available to the mkd_doc_title(), mkd_doc_author(),
     and mkd_doc_date() functions.

   Definition lists
     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
     : description
     (This is the format that PHP Markdown Extra uses.)

   embedded stylesheets
     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.

   relaxed emphasis
     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

   alpha lists
     Alphabetic lists (like regular numeric lists, but with alphabetic items)
     are supported.    So:
         a. this
         b. is
         c. an alphabetic
         d. list
     will produce:
         <ol type=a>
         <li>an alphabetic</li>

     PHP Markdown Extra tables are supported;  input of the form
          text | text
     will produce:
     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.
