I'm trying to use Marked to read this book:

The code examples aren't rendered properly, this makes it rather difficult to use Marked.

    Those code snippets are built using fenced code blocks, which MultiMarkdown does not understand. While future versions may support this, code blocks currently need to be entered in blocks indented by 4 spaces or a tab, or within backticks for single line snippets. I cannot currently support code fencing within Marked.

    The easy solution is to save the raw file and run a regex to convert fenced code blocks to tab-indented ones. Even easier, use Gather to convert the page to more workable MultiMarkdown automatically. I'm attempting to attach an example output to this message, if it fails I'll add one in a moment.
