MarkItUp (beta) allows for you to use Markdown on your WordPress site.

It does this on a per-author basis and per-post. This means that you shouldn't be accidently converting other people's posts/pages into Markdown by accident!

Currently this wears the beta label because it could have little bumps which aren't smoothed out just yet.
