While I really like the fact that you're using Markdown for formatting, I think, there's a small formatting issue with preformatted text. Something like

A paragraph.

    Preformatted text.

Another Paragraph.

is rendered like this:

<code>Preformatted text.</code>

which adds an empty line after </code> and before </pre>. It seems, that the browser compensates the first empty line. TextMate's markdown converter renders the example like this:

<pre><code>Preformatted text.</code>

which IMHO is the correct way. The same problem can be seen with this posting, btw.

I'm on OS X using Safari 4 beta, if that matter. The issue is also present with Firefox 3.

PS: A little margin after headlines wouldn't hurt, either.
