New Markdown engine

Not really a big deal, but the web redesign has brought along a new Markdown engine it seems.

Some of my comments are spiced up with various formatting commands and I have noticed that the new parser seems to interpret the embedded formatting information in a different way to its predecessor. In particular, numbered lists no longer work with the old syntax.

When the redesign dust has settled it would be handy if the changes could be documented somewhere. Thanks.
