NAME¶Markdent::Dialect::Standard - Markdown as defined by John Gruber
use Markdent::Parser; my $parser = Markdent::Parser->new( handler => ... );
DESCRIPTION¶The "Standard" dialect is plain Markdown as defined by John Gruber (<http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/>) and as implemented by Dingus (<http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/dingus>).
This is the default dialect, so you do not need to ask for it explicitly.
DEVIATIONS¶The Standard dialect as implemented by Markdent differs from Dingus in a few ways:
- HTML attribute quote delimiters are not preserved, so a single quote may be converted into a double quote.
- Whitespace on an empty line in a code block is preserved by Markdent, but not by Dingus.
- Markdent will not generate bad HTML from Markdown markup. Markdent does
not allow unbalanced markup events to propagate, and will turn unbalanced
events into plain text.
Here is an example:
*em **strong* wtf**
Dingus turns this into:
<p><em>em <strong>strong</em> wtf</strong></p>
Markdent's HTML output for the same:
<p><em>em **strong</em> wtf**</p>
Note that with inline HTML, Markdent echoes it more or less as-is, so you can still produce bad HTML with Markdent.
BUGS¶See Markdent for bug reporting details.
