Well, we don't have a list, since I suppose the list could be huge :-P

By no chance RDiscount is going to work.
It uses a really obscure POSIX function that uses function callbacks
that is really hard to migrate or provide a cross platform support
However, there are some Markdown implementation in the lines of
RedCloth (using Ragel parser) that can work on Windows.
Perfection in design is achieved not when there is nothing more to add,
but rather when there is nothing more to take away.
