There are many wonderful markup languages. For example here are some of their file extensions: nroff, md, tex, org, info, rtf, ps, html, etc. etc. We love them all.
In most cases I visit these files with no intention of editing their content. I'd prefer to see them rendered by the tools that handle them.
My question - Is there a lovely solution for this. For example, something that wraps advice around the existing modes for each of these (possibly using pandoc?).
Currently I'm slowly puzzling out how to add entries to auto-mode-alist. This is tedious and feels quite bogus. Some of these entries are just odd - for example (add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.info\\'" . Info-on-current-buffer)).
For example your view of this question is rendered markdown, if you want to see it raw you can, but that's a rare desire. For example most markup formats are displayed rendered in github, if you want the source you can hit the raw button.
My question, desire?, is has somebody already assembled an library that enhances some or all the major modes for markup languages to default to a more human oriented view?
