I have really liked using textile for my post formatting as it provides easy to read and write code while also publishing very clean HTML. I have had problems with it when I mix HTML and Textile code as I do often on my web log. Textile’s main alternative is similar language called Markdown. I have started working with it this morning and so far so good.
- First, I downloaded the markdown plugin for wordpress.
- Then I converted my pages using textile to plain html.
- Finally, I converted that html to markdown and pasted it back into my web log.
