Python-Markdown extension to allow for subscript text.
An extension to the Python Markdown project which adds the ability to
subscript text. To do so, the character
~ becomes a Markdown tag
for text meant to be subscripted, and is replaced with the HTML
For example, given the text:
The molecular composition of water is H~2~O.
… using Markdown with this extension will output:
<p>The molecular composition of water is H<sub>2</sub>O.</p>
