  • I would like a way to disable Markdown by default in posts I write.
  • The HTML formatting is richer, and it's what I use because I don't feel like having to remember yet another set of formatting syntaxes.
  • One big disadvantage of Markdown is that it's too easy to trigger by accident. This has tripped me up a few times already. I'd like a setting that disables Markdown so that seemingly-innocent characters don't start doing strange things to my posts.

I would like a way to disable Markdown by default in posts I write.

The HTML formatting is richer, and it's what I use because I don't feel like having to remember yet another set of formatting syntaxes.

One big disadvantage of Markdown is that it's too easy to trigger by accident.  This has tripped me up a few times already.  I'd like a setting that disables Markdown so that seemingly-innocent characters don't start doing strange things to my posts.
