    This is the ultimate tutorial on using John Gruber's Markdown "language" to format plain text documents as RTF, PDF or HTML files. The examples are well-chosen and the video clips illustrate each of the steps in the tutorial. The book also explains the services and extensions that can be added to Markdown and reviews the software available for using Markdown as your day to day writing language.
