Markdown has become the de facto standard for readme files or changelogs in many programming communities, such as github etc.
It's a lightweight, plain-text and non-intrusive markup syntax, leaving text intelligible, searchable and easily exportable in various formats like HTML, PDF, Word etc.
Moreover, it's supported by many issue tracking tools, like YouTrack and others, and it's often adopted by online forums or wiki.
I'd like this syntax to be supported by PSPad, and rendered in a preview panel.
Imho, it would further spread PSPad's use in the communities mentioned above, making their (our) job easier.
I leave the reference site below.
Thanks in advance

It doesn't look complicated.
But I can't imagine what should PSPad highlight and how.

Markdown files are ascii files with .md extension and with text formatted with particular rules.
I add some resources that help You to add Markdown feature in PSPad.
I suggest to browse Dillinger - a online Markdown Editor.
• Online Markdown Editor -> Dillinger: dillinger.io
• Markdown - Wikipedia (eng): en.wikipedia.org
• Markdown Guide (pdf): markdown.p2hp.com
• Mastering Markdown - GitHub: guides.github.com
Markdown is used also in chat sites like Discord so you can see usage examples:
• Discord support: support.discord.com
• Markdown - The Discord Wiki: discordia.me
Thank You very much.

Dillinger doesn't highlight markup language, but render result page.
PSPad is text editor, it can highlight part of the text only.
What can I do is make new highlighter for markdown
Split text to attributes and each attribute can have own color and font style
It can't be done by general highlighter definition, it needs to be programmed - I must write new internal highlighter.

I just discovered PSPad and it is amazing!
I would welcome MarkDown highlighting as it is indeed the defacto standard among our devs and sysadmins.
We particularly use the code blocks between ```

I am slowly working on MarkDown highlighter. So it will be available in future

Markdown is a great feature, can anyone write a plugin for pspad ?

I statrted with markdown highlighter, but PSpad stability has much higher priority
