Speaker: John Bamberg (UWA)

Title: Multimarkdown and typesetting mathematics.

Abstract: Markdown has been around for around a decade or so, and is a simpler alternative to xml for producing simple easy-to-read text with powerful mark-up capability. If you don't already know what Markdown is, then you really ought to know! The genius of Markdown is that it has an almost flat learning curve, and it is ideal for people who have no programming experience. It can be easily converted to RTF or HTML and is essentially platform independent. For more advanced use, there is "Multimarkdown", and yet it is still amazingly simple and intuitive. Multimarkdown can be easily converted to HTML and LaTeX, and so it has the potential to be very useful to mathematicians. This seminar is a basic introduction to this fantastic mark-up language.
