Hence I always recommend AsciiDoc over Markdown. ;-) There are many
basic documentation concepts that MD simply doesn't support. Just to
name a few:

* Built-in comment support
* Admonition blocks
* More control over images
* More control over lists
* Better table handling
* Auto table-of-content generation (not all MD dialects
  support this)
* AsciiDoc is one standard and dialect
* AsciiDoc never needs to embed HTML to accomplish something,
  because the target might not always be HTML.

Just my 2¢ worth. :)
