What's this?

js-markdown-extra is a experimental JavaScript port of PHP Markdown Extra.

PHP Markdown Extra demo

How to use

Load this script in HTML and call Markdown function.

    //example : 
    var html = Markdown( text );


It has possibility of entering infinite loop by some user input because I try to port PHP Markdown Extra with incompatible regular expression test.
