I'll put in my vote for markdown, it's easier to "get right" for the average user than HTML

I'm 100% for markdown or a similar non-HTML solution. Scrubbing user HTML is
notoriously tricky, so I'd like to depend on it as little as possible. Also,
HTML markup typically requires more characters and looks uglier than
markdown-or-similar, which affects user experience IMOYMMVBRB.
