Text Formating... Markdown???

I know this is an opinion thing (rather fitting for this forum), but I'm sorry, markdown kicks textile's ass. I know that you're passing the content through bluecloth because I can use markdown syntax. How does that work? Does the content go through both Markdown and Textile? I sometimes get weird results, such as starting a line with a Markdown link and having it disapear... Also, the margin for lists is screwed up on the product details admin page.

The RedCloth ruby library implements textile and a subset of markdown. It makes for a really nice mix.

Overall I prefer markdown syntax more often then not but textile is a more common standard and supports some important advanced things like tables.

Tables… Learn HTML right? As long as I can use my subset of markdown I guess I’m happy.

Thanks

Well tables are still good for tabular data, even in an XHTML world like shopify. Especially when you list features of products they can come in handy, textiles simple table syntax is very nice for this.
