I'm trying to use Org mode's export to markdown, and am finding some unexpected results.
For a file:
* Section This is some test.[fn:1] @@markdown:This should appear in markdown export.@@ * Footnotes [fn:1] This is a footnote.
The export backend produces:
# Table of Contents 1. [Section](#org26628a6) <a id="org26628a6"></a> # Section This is some test.<sup><a id="fnr.1" class="footref" href="#fn.1">1</a></sup> # Footnotes <sup><a id="fn.1" href="#fnr.1">1</a></sup> This is a footnote.
Which looks very much like a mixture of markdown with html markup. Plus
@@markdown: ...@@ does not seem to work.
What am I missing? Any ideas of how I could get better results?
Update: Says the Org mode manual:
mdback-end is built over HTML back-end: any construct not supported by Markdown syntax (e.g., tables) will be controlled and translated by ‘html’ back-end.
So that's probably the explanation to the result, as neither ToC nor footnotes seem to be supported by vanilla markdown.
