I don't think so.  There's several markdown packages on Marmalade, but
these seem more geared towards generating Markdown, and not displaying

A function to convert Markdown into HTML might be nice, but I haven't
really seen anybody post with Markdown, so I'm not sure how useful this
would be.  But I guess it's a chicken and egg problem -- if mail readers
did support rendering Markdown, then people would start writing in

But is that a good thing?  :-)
