Just a quick update to let you know that you can finally choose to write your website content with DatoCMS using the Markdown markup language.
Markdown is used extensively in the static-web universe, is extremely simple to learn even for non-technical people and leads to clean and semantic HTML, so adding proper support for it was a no-brainer decision for us.
