Interesting list. I've always liked working with plain text files.

Do you have any information/opinion about various forms of markdown
files (i.e. Markdown, RestructureText, AsciiDoc).

This semester, I played with making slide presentations using AsciiDoc
and its "slidy" backend.

The source file might look something like:


Slide Title

* A Bulleted item

** A nested bulleted item with *boldface* type.
** Another nested bulleted item with _italicized_ text.

Another Slide Title

After creating the document, I run it through AsciiDoc's converter and
it creates a very simple slide presentation in HTML format. However, the
source file remains plain text. Would a screen reader get tripped up by
the various formatting tags (* A Bulleted item; _italics_, *boldface*)?
