Htext2 adds bold and italic formatting and bullet lists to the simple htext that RS presented. It departs from the current wiki markup format in favor of traditional setext. This format is *much* easier to parse than wiki text and I've always liked it.

  • bold is enabled with *asterists around a phrase*
  • italic is enabled with ~tilte around a phrase~
  • bullet lists are created by placing a * in the first column and indented lines after a bullet continue the bullet description instead of going unformatted.

There was an issue including the code directly in a wiki page so I'll try to put it here htext2.tcl
