Recommended choices for formatting web pages:

  • Pongo2
  • Markdown
  • Lua that outputs HTML
    • Amber

Combining Amber and Markdown is not recommended, since they don't interact well.

In Algernon >=0.87, there is a Lua function named markdown(), for converting Markdown to HTML, and a function named render() that can return the rendered contents of files in the same directory. This makes it easier to combine Lua and Markdown.
