  5. The Problems with Markdown
  6. The Dilemma How do we write content that can show up in multiple places?
  7. The Solution * Hidden from search and other links
  8. Limitations • Can't include partial content. All or nothing (except front matter). • Requires duplicate empty "placeholder" files to insert content into. • Standard issues with "single source" models (see, e.g., single-source-publishing/) • Working around some of these though
  9. Wins • Provides a flexible framework for future product versions • Allows us to continue to write only (mostly) markdown for the content (no code needed for includes)
  10. Thanks!
