Hello all,
For friendly-link and SEO I’d like to replace spaces in <h#> IDs with hyphens instead of simply getting stripped out. Is this possible?

    You can do two things. If you use the Discount (GFM) processor, you'll
    get that automatically. If you're using MultiMarkdown, you can use
    [header-id] to define your own ids.

    ## This is my header [this-is-my-header]

    Will turn into the header with an id of "this-is-my-header"
