PHP Markdown 1.4.1

A PHP version of John Gruber's Markdown Perl library, a simple PHP implementation of the famous Markdown text formatting syntax
The original Markdown Perl library has seen wide-spread adoption and is today a de-facto text formatting syntax for online services like GitHub, BitBucket, and many other more.

It's extremely easy to learn and use, even without a rich text editor, and allows an in-depth control of the text's formatting via simple ASCII based characters.

The PHP library works as the original Perl version, supporting all the original syntax, plus some extra new ones.

Extra version features:
Inline HTML
Markdown Inside HTML Blocks
Header Id Attribute
Fenced Code Blocks
Definition Lists
Backslash Escapes

As the original, the PHP Markdown library converts that syntax from Markdown to HTML and back if needed.

What's New in This Release:
  • The HTML block parser will now treat <figure> as a block-level element (as it should) and no longer wrap it in <p> or parse it’s content with the as Markdown syntax (although with Extra you can use markdown="1" if you wish to use the Markdown syntax inside it).
  • The content of <style> elements will now be left alone, its content won’t be interpreted as Markdown.
  • Corrected an bug where some inline links with spaces in them would not work even when surrounded with angle brackets.
  • Fixed an issue where email addresses with quotes in them would not always have the quotes escaped in the link attribute, causing broken links (and invalid HTML).
