I've just installed a copy of wordpress 1.5, and I'm quite curious what exactly does the Markdown or Textile 1 plugins do? I've tried following the links, but can't quite make much sense of it.
Would I like to have one, or the other, turned on right now?
How do i use it, why would i want to, and which should I choose?
Should I just leave it off for now, and turn it on later, or would I be better of turning either on right from the start?
