With an increasing rate of tasks, being created in our Issue Tracker (Mantis) I'm really grow tired of typing all these long BBCodes (http://www.mantisbt.org/forums/faq.php?mode=bbcode) to make Mantis task look as nice as formatted Google Group post I create.

I'm proposing to integrate Markdown language parser (http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/) or it's PHP port (http://michelf.com/projects/php-markdown/) into mantis instead of currently used BBCode plugin.

And it's easy to migrate all used BBCodes into new format using few SQL queries.
