Pandoc have very nice feature of escaped spaces and newlines.

\{space} transforms into  . It is much shorter and easier to use than  
\{new-line} transforms into <br>. And it is visible unlike default syntax with spaces at the end (some IDEs tend to remove trailing spaces automatically).

Do you have plans to support these extensions?

You can use two backslashes or two spaces at the end of a line to create a <br /> element.

Currently, I don't plan to support a conversion from backslash-space to a non-breaking space. You can easily enter a non-breaking space directly - see
