Markdown Textarea Example

This is a simple no-frills textarea with some buttons to perform common Markdown operations. I'm a developer so the ability to post snippets of code is really important. Blockquotes are the building blocks of blogging. I've helpfully provided some text to play with. If you want to see what the text will look like in HTML then select it and copy it to Dingus. All of the above buttons work on a selected area of text.
