module browser.markdown

markdown is a mode of text formatting adapted to publication on Internet, more simple to edit than HTML

A complete description is available on the mardown site. The module markdown is a slightly adapted version : to enrich the rendering options, the markdown tags _text_ and *text* match two different HTML tags : <I> and <EM>, as well as __text__ and **text** that match <B> and <STRONG>

The module markdown exposes a single function :

src is a string holding text formatted with the markdown syntax. The function returns a 2-element tuple : html, scripts where html is the HTML code generated from the source, and scripts is a list of all the source code of scripts found in the page

from browser import document as doc
from browser import markdown
mk,scripts = markdown.mark(open(url).read())
doc['zone'].html = mk
for script in scripts:
