Does it have to be javascript? Perhaps an api which can translate from html to markup and back on the server side?

With another wiki the translation from html to markdown is enormously difficult. Is this the case here?

They resolve this by adding additional attributes (like <p data-foo="bar">) to the html markup. Is this the best approach?
