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