==== Description: ====
FoxUp is a mode-based markup language, based on a "define-and-reset" markup
style. The idea lies in the user defining the basic layout of their document
in powerful syntax, and letting FoxUp take care of making it look consistent
and professional, reverting as much as they need in one command.

For example, the syntax "`rf20bi." would enter Markup mode, right-align the
selection, set the font-size to 20 pixels, turn the text bold and italic and
go back to Input mode, where the user can enter text. This effect would remain
until the user reverts it, most easily with "`q." (Enter Markup mode, revert
all, enter Input mode). Please note that FoxUp is still under development, and
that the specific commands may change at any time.

The main inspiration to write FoxUp is a dislike for Markdown's syntax.

It parses FoxUp documents, outputting HTML5 documents.

It is written in Ruby.

==== Other Software Required: ====
HTMLEntities | MIT (Expat) |

==== Other Comments: ====
I'm not sure how README licensing even works, but I find it important that the
example README file, both in FoxUp and parsed HTML format, are public domain,
to give users unrestricted freedom in working with this example.
