Markdown is a lightweight markup language, allowing people "to write using an easy-to-read, easy-to-write plain text format, then convert it to structurally valid XHTML (according to the creator of this language, John Gruber)". The language takes many cues from existing conventions for marking up plain text in email. 

With Instant Markdown, the reader will learn the basic syntax through practical and focused examples, and will also learn how to use Markdown to do many different things, such as participating in forums and discussions, writing emails, sharing documents, blogging, creating to-do lists, creating presentations, converting Markdown files to other formats such as PDF, or using Markdown extensions. 

Instant Markdown is for people who are interested in an introduction to Markdown. The reader need not have any specific knowledge about programming or markup languages. This book will give many ideas about using Markdown and utilizing its full potential over many different services.
