Element Web translates your markdown into HTML when you send a message, and translates it back the other way when you want to edit a message.

This is a great opportunity for round-trip tests!

I am writing some, and finding lots of juicy bugs.

@andybalaam Interesting. I thought it would've used the unformatted text from the event (which seems to almost always be what I typed) instead of working backwards from HTML -> MD

That would be better, current behaviour is not great as you don't necessarily get something close to what you wrote.

@afranke @tek_dmn
Yeah, just had a chat about that here. It would be great if we preserved the original markdown you typed. We could do that, but we don't 😠

@afranke pointed out the markdown is in the plain text message. Interesting ... I feel like we probably mangle it though.
