My personal response to markdown
As developer I started with Markdown few years ago, when GitHub started trending. I'd like to remember the true Markdown father John Gruber and the his Markdown post.
I started using the Markdown syntax almost for everything and if you aren't doing so, please you have to.
It's a great too, it makes possible to write HTML knowing nothing about that.
You can use a simple text editor, and most important, it can be "embedded" in whatever website, desktop app or mobile. Seriously, they should teach it in school.
More than once I had to create css styles for the html result of markdowns, and you probably know I'm talking about the most important html tags:
<a> and few others.
Then I thought I would be cool to create a css that would dress up everything like the plain markdown source.

That's why I created i-love-markdown.css.
I started with a simple css then ended up with a less file and a container so it'll be easy to integrate it with existent websites.
After I finished I googled a bit for something similar and I discovered many others had my same idea...
One of my favorites is: markdown-css (http://mrcoles.com/demo/markdown-css/)
