Markdown on Visual Studio 2013

Today I got a nice surprise. I was updating a class on one of my OSS projects and I opened the file to write the version history. I had just changed the README to to take advantage of the Markdown styling.

This was my surprise: Markdown_on_vs2013 Markdown rendering inside Visual Studio. Why was I editing markdown all this time on Notepad++? Why!?!?!?!

At first I thought this was a VS feature. Nop, It isn’t. This feature is from Web Essentials plugin.

Anyway, this little surprise just made my day. (That and a new issue posted by someone with interest in the ar-SA locale on my library. This only shows it’s beeing used by someone. I really love when new Issues arrive.).
