ÖlbauML

After planning it for several months, I finally wrote my own Movable Type text plugin. I will test it a bit and then post the source and some documentation.

But in the meantime here is a demo.

I can easily write <, > and & using backslash (\) escapes.

Block quotes in ÖlbauML rule.

Automatically numbered headings (not in Markdown, though)

Yes, really

And easier than in MS Word.

Of course, regular headings are possible too

I can write code, inline and

> in  a <
> block <

Update (today): This was no real update, just a demo of the <update> tag.

Note from Olivier: On the other hand, this was a real note and a demo of the <note> tag.

Other features include this1 and easy sub- and superscripts (not in Markdown either):

E1 = v t2 / 2

Schrödinger’s cat is dead alive.

Update (19.4.005): I have re-written this post using Markdown and as they basically let me do the same things and I didn’t want to port ÖlbauML to PHP to use with Movable Type’s dynamic publishing feature.
