ShmerlGreat, thanks!

Big block works, but small section doesn't seem to. But it's different from bbcode in that regards (bbcode doesn't support inline code at all as far as I know).
Yeah, that will be a whole different thing to try and implement and need corresponding css styles to allow it too.

There is a Markdown trick with escaping the character, to turn it off. Sometimes can be useful

I.e.

\``` should turn off markdown parsing for the first `

Why don't links automatically turn into links any more? It was very handy, and is what happens on most forums I know. Even GOG when it doesn't muck things up (which admittedly happens often there).

It never quite worked right, and was breaking often, plus the regex for it was a terrible mess. You can use markdown links or encapsulate them in <link>.

Edit: testing a new one I worked on today.
