Markdown will basically convert your content into valid and properly formed XHTML. You don't have to deal with HTML tags and code. Markdown will take care of that for you.

Astronut is a new iPhone game coming this holiday season from the Iconfactory, makers of Twitterrific, Ramp Champ, and other well-known iOS titles. Chock full of cosmic-scale, arcade-style action, Astronut promises 24 levels across 6 sectors, and full support for Apple's Game Center. And as with most things they put pixel and code to, it looks frakking awesome.
Iconfactory's Gedeon Maheux told TiPb:
"I firmly believe Astronut is our finest entertainment title to date. We’ve crafted the game play to be fun and addicting, while creating the beautiful graphics users love to see on the stunning retina display on iPhone and iPod
touch. We can't wait to get it into player's hands."
