Title : Madoko Heading Base: 2
Madoko -- a Fast Scholarly Markdown Processor
Even though Madoko is fast, the main design goal is not efficiency: I wanted to extend Markdown to make it suitable to create high-quality scholarly and industrial documents for the web and print, while maintaining John Gruber's Markdown philosophy of simplicity and focus on plain text readability.
Besides HTML output, also generates high-quality PDF files through LaTeX. Even though more Markdown implementations support this, there has been a lot of effort in Madoko to make the LaTeX generation robust and customizable. This makes it possible to write high-quality articles using just Madoko and get both a high-quality print format (PDF) and a good looking HTML page.
