And a lot like what's done in various Wikis, which all have
plaintext markup schemes.  PHPWiki, which I use a lot,
has ''italics'', '''bold''' or __bold__, and LocalLink or
[local link] or [remote link|URI].  Leading *s make
unnumbered lists (use **, *** for sublists), # or ## or ###
for numbered lists, :term;definition for definition lists,
! or !! or !!! for H3, H2, H1.
