DAMarkdown will be re-activated next beta, but unfortunately I had to make it a lot more strict than I originally wanted :(

Originally I had taken Markdown and made it a lot more free, but I found out the hard way that there is a reason the original is not like that :)

DAMarkdown will now much more closely follow the Markdown Syntax including requirements, specifically this one which caused me tons of grief:

The implication of the “one or more consecutive lines of text” rule is that Markdown supports “hard-wrapped” text paragraphs. This differs significantly from most other text-to-HTML formatters (including Movable Type’s “Convert Line Breaks” option) which translate every line break character in a paragraph into a <br /> tag.

When you do want to insert a <br /> break tag using Markdown, you end a line with two or more spaces, then type return.
