Pandoc Markdown

I've been using the Pandoc document translator / compiler periodically for a few years to create HTML documentation from Markdown. Recently, I started using it more frequently, so I took the time to develop a custom CSS style (nrstyle.css) to make the documents look nicer. Since writing Markdown is so simple, I am considering using this for new articles that I post here.

The following is an example document that demonstrates most of the major Pandoc Markdown features, and uses nrstyle.css when rendering:

The Markdown document, example.md:

When converted to HTML, using Pandoc, the document above becomes example.html:

And here are some articles that I wrote a few years ago and recently translated to Markdown:

approx.md \rightarrow approx.html

eulers-equation.md \rightarrow eulers-equation.html

cubic-spline.md \rightarrow cubic-spline.html

complex-trig.md \rightarrow complex-trig.html

inverse-trig.md \rightarrow inverse-trig.html
