Isn't the point of markdown that it's perfectly readable as plain text,
ie that there is no markup?  I'd think sending straight markdown would
be just fine.

This could also be a client-side only feature, allowing input in
markdown, then converting it to HTML and sending it as HTML-IM I suppose?

Just some random thoughts, thanks,
