New story! Try Asciidoc instead of Markdown

I'm a happy user of the XML-based Docbook markup language. To me, it's a precise, explicit, and detailed system that allows me to have contextual and domain-specific metadata in what I write.

With great power comes a lot of typing, though, and sometimes Docbook feels like it's surplus to requirements. Luckily, there's Asciidoc, a system of writing plain text with the same markup-less feel of Markdown, but that transforms to Docbook to take advantage of its precision and flexibility.
