Again, this is not what I am trying to do and of course I am aware that any OO/LO document has lots 
of formatting and options that markdown lacks that would be lost going from OO/LO, that's the 
reason for using markdown.

My focus - which the other users understood - is to focus on the content of the document, using 
OO/LO later to polish the presentation of the content.

Although I did not mention it, there are also several markdown editors running on Android phones 
and tablets allowing me to work on document content on the go.

format which, by design, can "only addresses issues that can be conveyed in plain text" (per

The Multimarkdown editor supposedly can create OO files but since it does
not run on my systems I have not been able to give it a try.

Going from markdown to ODF should be fine, going the other way is naturally going to be lossy.
