The help text with the description of the Markdown syntax is quite incomplete. This concerns these pages:
Features such as tables, definition lists or footnotes are not described at all.
Also, the link
is not helpful and outdated. In fact, Moodle uses "PHP Markdown Extra"

Therefore, the link (1) should be replaced by (2). Also, the software (file markdown.php)
is not the latest version in Moodle 1.71. It should be updated.
