      I think the OP means to ask for some way to automatically convert the
      plaintext to HTML _inside Notetab_. Markdown is an interesting idea, but
      the means they offer to perform the conversion is through a Perl script.
      Which means you have to install Perl to do the conversion (or integrate
      the conversion into the server blogging software, like other lightweight
      markup languages -- BBcode, MediaWiki and such -- often do).

      What would be nice is a Notetab clip that did the conversion. Even an
      incomplete implementation of Markdown (or other lightweight language,
      for that matter) would be helpful. Is anybody aware of such a clip?
      Considering that Notetab already uses the PCRE engine for regular
      expressions, it should be possible to reuse parts of the Markdown Perl
      script to do the job...
