Change to markdown so we can use pandoc http://johnmacfarlane.net/pandoc/ to convert files to pdf, EPUB ebooks, odt, etc.

Yikes, looks like the conversion will take a bunch of work.

I used pandoc to convert textile to markdown but it seems the code examples aren't converted correctly. I'll see how textile to html to markdown looks.

it seems these textile to html to markdown worked best but the code samples are still broken.

C:\Users\Owner\Desktop\github\CFML-in-100-minutes>pandoc -s cfml100mins.textile
-f textile -t html -o cfml100mins.html

C:\Users\Owner\Desktop\github\CFML-in-100-minutes>pandoc -s cfml100mins.html -f
html -t markdown -o cfml100mins2.markdown

Maybe try converting the code samples to encoded values, so that the CFML tags don't get misinterpreted as HTML? An encoder like this might help: http://meyerweb.com/eric/tools/dencoder/
