It seems from the "Markdown preview" thread that you are using discount as your markdown processor. Could you please enable some of the non-standard features of discount?
In particular, I would like to use the ~~~ syntax for code blocks, which doesn't seem to work in textastic now, but is supported by discount if it is compiled with the --with-fenced-code option. Could you turn this and other options on?
