When exporting to markdown Manuscripts does not make any semantical distinction between the title and headings (e.g., it uses setext-style syntax
== for the title and atx-style
# syntax for the headings). I was wondering if this problem could be solved by resorting to yaml-styled metadata blocks, such as:
--- title: The title author: Author affiliation: Whatever email: firstname.lastname@example.org etc. ---
This has two advantages: (a) both pandoc and multimarkdown recognise the syntax, and (b) it allows to include more information such as author list and affiliation, email, and even abstract and keywords.
