You know, I can see using Markdown in something like a README where it will be read in plain-text (the plain text of markdown is prettier than textile), but for issues, comments, and messages where no one will be reading the plain text, GitHub is parsing it with "GitHub Flavored Markdown":http://github.github.com/github-flavored-markdown/ and that makes me grumpy. I personally find it tedious to write in Markdown and I wish they'd add a Textile option. Do you too? Then vote here: http://github.com/defunkt/github-issues/issues/#issue/ 106 (click on the little vote arrow to the left of the issue title). Let's build a Textile coalition! Maybe we can even get Stephen Colbert to make a TV ad for us. ;-) Jason

If I mark my fie as README.textile It parses just fine on Github. Dave

Yes, and wiki pages appear to be Textile too, but comments, issues, and messages are Markdown.

Ah-ha. I didn't know that. Thanks for the clarification.
