Markdown (April 28, 2014)

The site has recently been converted to Markdown, using a converter and style sheet to make it look so much better than plain old HTML.

Thanks very much to Darcy Brás da Silva (dardevelin) for the markdown idea and assistance with some of the trouble I was having with headers and footers.

If you'd like to do something similar with your site, change the .html extension in any page's URL to .md. You'll see that it looks very nice even in plain text form, which is kind of markdown's purpose.
