Feature request for Marked that would link text in Marked with that in the source markdown file.

Ideally it'd be implemented like SyncTex is in TexShop for LaTeX documents. See this for a description:

I made a movie demonstrating this.

⌘-clicking on text in the source goes to the text in the preview and vice-versa. Fantastic for when you are reading your preview and then
you notice a change that needs to be made to the source. (Like Siracusa, I find that proofreading in a preview format catches more errors than doing so in source).

    This is more difficult in this case, and would take some javascripting in the preview to return anything like a text location. I'll look into the possibility, though.
