Linus Torvalds`use asciidoc

2.19: web.adda/markup/Linus Torvalds`use asciidoc:
. my programming language, adda,
includes a markup language
so that simple ascii documentation
can be converted to html with advanced features
like hyperlinks, and formatting .
. xml and html code is written in ascii
but it's not as readable by humans
since it's designed primarily for machines .
. Linus Torvalds was famous for
condemning xml and supporting asciidoc
so I became interested in studying asciidoc
and incorporating parts of that into adda markup .
. there is an asciidoc renderer for Chrome OS .
