Markdown is a way to define a web page without needing to use HTML markup. There are lots of uses for this but I use it to write blog posts in a much more readable format without having to bother with messy HTML. You do need some kind of interpreter for the Markdown code, which will convert it into HTML ready for display, but it makes writing way more efficient.
