    A light markup language

    Unfortunately for us, he is using Vim, so syntax highlighting for it only exists in Vim for now. (And of course, there's a lot more missing for a major mode than just syntax highlighting to be comparable to org-mode in usability. But pipes in tables, I have wished to have those.)

  • pandoc

    Universal markup converter

    It is. It is designed by the author of pandoc, John MacFarlane. He wanted a markup format that can be parsed unambiguously.
