A programming language that I use lets me format comments and docstrings using markdown, and then export my code and documentation to PDF.
When I edit the file, though, Emacs doesn't see comments as markdown; just as plain boring text.
I would like to access the full power of
markdown-mode when I edit comments, without giving up the nice features of my programming languages' major mode outside of comments. How can I do this?
(A similar problem would include using a Javadoc specific mode map and syntax highlighting inside of Javadoc comments, for example)
