Converting from CommonMark Markdown
Markdown was developed in 2004, with a spec and an implementation in Perl. Over the years implementations for more and more programming languages evolved. Unfortunately the specification was ambiguous in some points, so some implementations did things differently. CommonMark was developed 10 years later, in 2014, with an unambiguous spec and tests to see if new implementations are correct according to the spec. A few big players (GitHub, GitLab, Reddit, Swift and many more) adopted this common standard. So it’s basically the standard you might know already.

Converting to Rich Text Format
The Rich Text Format originated in the Microsoft Word Development team in 1987. It was developed for cross-platform document interchange with other products from Microsoft. You could say it’s the light version of Word files. Still proprietary, but less feature rich. It has more features than a plain text file, that’s why it has rich in the name though. There hasn’t been a change since 2008 (Version 1.9.1). It’s not dead though. Every once in a while there comes a small file with a .rtf extension. When you see such a file, you know it’s a Rich Text Format file. One cool thing: RTF files are human-readable. It’s not some binary file, it’s a plain text based markup format.The files end with
