For headers with spaces in them, github puts - character between the words while marked concatinate them without s separator
For example:
a b c d will have an id a-b-c-d in github and abcd in marked, is it possible to have a settings for that ? I really like marked to produce me html as close as github's

    This isn't possible with the current MultiMarkdown processor that Marked uses, but you should be able to set up Docter to get exact github output.

    I'll check that out.
    For now I just using github API (that could be a nice feature for Marked for future release)

    Created a script called with

    /usr/bin/curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: text/x-markdown" --data-binary @-

    Its a little slower but it works
