Why Markdown?

Markdown makes it quick and easy to format text, without ever needing to lift your fingers off the keyboard. This results in simpler text composition on the HOA Express interface. But perhaps more important is this- Markdown ensures extremely consistent and reliable formatting. Other types of editors that produce formatted text often result in complicated, error-prone, and inconsistent experiences. With Markdown, this problem is eliminated.

History

According to Wikipedia:

John Gruber, with substantial contributions from Aaron Swartz, created the Markdown language in 2004 with the goal of enabling people "to write using an easy-to-read, easy-to-write plain text format." ... The language was designed to be readable as-is, without looking like it's been marked up with tags or formatting instructions.
