Escape text for use in Markdown.
This will escape the provided text so that none of the characters will be rendered specially by Markdown.
Unescape Markdown-escaped text.
This will unescape the provided Markdown-formatted text so that any escaped characters will be unescaped.
Iterate over lines of Markdown, normalizing for individual display.
Generated Markdown HTML cannot by itself be handled on a per-line-basis. Code blocks, for example, will consist of multiple lines of content contained within a <pre> tag. Likewise, lists will be a bunch of <li> tags inside a <ul> tag, and individually do not form valid lists.
This function iterates through the Markdown tree and generates self-contained lines of HTML that can be rendered individually.
Return an XML element tree for Markdown-generated HTML.
This will build the tree and return all nodes representing the rendered Markdown content.
Sanitize a string, removing characters illegal in XML.
This will remove a number of characters that would break the XML parser. They may be in the string due to a copy/paste.
