This is just here for me as a fancy bookmark, on how to write proper Markdown formatted files for GitHub1 2.

From the source5:
Markdown is a text-to-HTML conversion tool for web writers. Markdown allows you to write using an easy-to-read, easy-to-write plain text format, then convert it to structurally valid XHTML (or HTML).

Thus, “Markdown” is two things:
  1. a plain text formatting syntax; and
  2. a converter which formats the plain text to HTML.
