I've been asked offline how markdown could be used with respect, here's

Markdownp parsing is opt-in, you enable it by setting the format property
of the respecConfig object to 'markdown', e.g.:


There are two passes to the markdown parser. First the content is parsed
and transformed into regular HTML using the marked node module. Then, a
second pass uses a document outlining-like algorithm to create and nest
sections within one another depending on the level of headers used. You
'll find more info and example input and output in the source code

I've used it for the Coremob spec[2] and test approach doc[2], but haven't
