So, it seems that lots of people don't like the *WYSIWYG editor* in WordPress, so I thought I'd have a look at some alternatives:* [Texy!](http://texy.info/) sounded good, but it failed to activate at line 235, and I couldn't see any obvious reason why. Maybe it's not compatible with WP 2.3?* [Markdown](http://www.michelf.com/projects/php-markdown/) is something I've wanted to try for a while, and it seemed to install fine. The [syntax page](http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax) is difficult to read, but I'll try to use it for a few weeks until it becomes natural.This is a __first post__ to try out Markdown.
