I got started using MMD a few weeks back as the official syntax for my
open source project's documentation. (See http://documentation.openfisma.org
if you're interested.)
The big appeal to me was the easily readable, text-oriented syntax.
This enables us to manage our documentation just like source code. I
can compare two versions and quickly see what was changed. I can
publish to a number of formats. And the textmate bundle eliminates the
tedium of manually cleaning up the lists and tables. Life is good :)
Anyway, my next objective is to start getting others on board with
creating and maintaining documentation. I use Mac OS X and Textmate,
but everybody else is virtually guaranteed to be on Windows. Are there
any (free) text editors for Windows that have any MMD support? I
realize its a long shot, but I figured I should ask.
PS -- any consideration for multiple lines or paragraphs in tables?
this is my only limitation so far. i find most tables in my documents
are too wide to use MMD syntax, so i resort to HTML instead.
