I agree that we don't need Markdown in the docs. It would just add another layer of complexity and I don't know how well the mentioned plugin plays along with our other plugins (it

Markdown could be handy for the Q&A though. I'll work on the markdown editor plugin there again, now that I finally got over my cold/flu/whateveritwas. :)
