I'm building a personal website using markdown. Fletcher Penny (I can't post URL's yet - google fletcherpenny.net) built a MultiMarkdown site for this purpose. He makes a complete package available on Github - just a wee bit of Apache server config and it runs out of the box. Just tweak the CSS a bit to customize, and your good to go.

Uses Perl scripts to handle all the dynamic page elements, so it doesn't scale real well to heavy use, but for a personal site, using plain-text markdown files, its brilliant.

Anyone else used this, have experience with it?
