Hi,

I know kramdown has support for latex math block, but when i use pure latex kramdown converts this

\begin{figure}
\includeicon{./Blume.pdf}
\centering
\caption{Konstruktionszeichnung der}
\label{img:Bubble}
\end{figure}

to

\textbackslash{}begin\{figure\}
\textbackslash{}includeicon\{./Blume.pdf\}
\textbackslash{}centering
\textbackslash{}caption\{Konstruktionszeichnung der\}
\textbackslash{}label\{img:Bubble\}
\textbackslash{}end\{figure\}

It would be nice if kramdown could handle markdown files more like pandoc. In pandoc it is possible to mix markdown and LaTeX as you like without any escape characters/sequences.

This gives you the simplicity of markdown and the power of LaTeX when you really need it.

Best Regards,

Alex Wall
