John Gruber has written a Perl script that renders his "Markdown" syntax into HTML. I want Radio's redering architecture to do the same. This page is a collection of notes about the programming project.

Markdown rendering in Radio

How would you do it?

Radio has callback code for the weblogPostForm. This seems like a logical place to start:

1. User types a post using the Markdown syntax.

2. User presses the Post or Publish button

3. Callback executes the tool script that:

a. copies the post in raw Markdown syntax into a safe place

b. renders a copy using the syntax rules to produce the HTML

c. save the result
