I have a function to 'mark up' selected text with content before / after. I want a variant on this for markdown mode. How to make C-c C-r specific to markdown mode please?

Thanks. Due care and job done in 2 minutes! Saved me buying a Fujifilm XE-2 (grin).
Ah well, I'll stick with this one for a while longer. Much appreciated and so simple!

But the video was spot on. I hadn't even spotted the dent in the housing! Now working properly again.

What? I prefer your own format Xah (I have become quite fond of it in fact) - why the change to this one?

I have 3 Konrads. All of which 'blob' totally out of the blue. Yesterday I heat set one, twice in 2 minutes microwaved water, likely close to boiling. Dipped for about 30 seconds, pressed as per video.

filled with Noodlers black... Fingers crossed, cheap(ish) paper. Two sides of A4, expecting the worst. .... It was fine. 
Today using it on my diary, nice paper. Half a sheet of A4. So far so good. My hopes are raised Brian!  I'll let you know. 

Bit like a bad garage though, it will take ages before I trust the pen again!

+The Goulet Pen Company That is a little contradictory Brian? In two places you say nib+feed out = wetter, then nib further out from feed = wetter? I guess it's just a case of try the combinations? Which brings up my point, having heat set it, too much adjustment, nib to feed, feed to body, will / may upset the fit? btw, 5 A4 pages now, no gushing! Fingers crossed.

Questions  - 
 
Test Driven Design. 
I'm quite impressed with TDD and wondered how it might work in elisp / emacs.

The sort of problems I'm having? 
Regions. I have a function which picks out a region - how to show that? How to decide if it's what I want? 
A basic suite of 'assertX' functions (strings, vectors, boolean etc)

Has anyone looked at this please?

"TDD without a pair programming partner is like programming while wearing only one shoe." You may hobble a bit, but you can get from A to B, if you have to.
The basics are well-known: Everyone knows the basic cycle of TDD. You should also know the improved Industrial Logic version of the TDD cycle. You have heard Uncle Bob's three rules. But there is so much more to know. I hav...

Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Doh! They don't open on Thursdays... I now read their opening times on the website! What they don't have they can get. Great patience with the 'unknowing' (if you know what I mean :-)
