Hello David,

I will just add that there already exist a couple of markdown converters
in TeX Live; namely https://www.ctan.org/pkg/markdown and
from the m-markdown ConTeXt module. Either could be used to typeset
the documentation, although conversion to HTML is probably preferable
due to factors such as speed and font / input encoding / text language

Best Regards,

> David
