This is a small add-on for Custom Field Suite which adds a Markdown field type. The field works similarly to the standard textarea input except that it accepts Markdown syntax. In addition to being able to parse and display markdown correctly on the front end, the field also features a WYSIWYG-ish toolbar and a live Markdown preview window to make adding Markdown easier.
