Seems a bit confusing to find a simple example of markdown to docx in your examples page.
Can you post the code to convert this md file to docx?

@yaytul, the documentation for the extension can be found in the wiki: Docx-Renderer-Extension

It also points to working sample code that you can use as a starting point.

The rest, as they say, is left as an exercise for the reader.
