Text highlight in kramdown


Is out there any option to covert ==highlighted text== into <mark>highlighted text</mark> in the same way redcarpet does with kramdown?

I can’t find anything anywhere.

I think ::highlighted text:: also works.

@lpuerto What kind of highlighting would you like to do? Bold, italics, enlarged font?

This page may help

I think I’ve already stated in the original post. I want to highlight the text in the same way as <mark>...</mark> html tags do.


Kramdown render ==highlighted== as ==highlight==, so I’m wondering if there is any option out there to activate the correct rendering as there is in redcarpet.

This is not currently possible, watch https://github.com/gettalong/kramdown/issues/559 if someone opens a pull request.

Thank you Ipuerto. I’ve been looking for this highlight feature in jekyll.
