Description

While doing this change some HTML code or HTML pages can be converted to markdown. Markdown is lighter to work with and more resilient to dead links.

Yes, I already converted many pages from HTML to Markdown but some are left.

A tricky thing is that whenever you change the original content of a page, the translations get fuzzy and disabled. So on top of that you have to rescue them. That's why so far I was only doing that in addition to other changes on the page. But it's possible to do it just for fun as well :)

Note also that in ikiwiki (or Markdown) once you included some content in a HTML tag, for example, inside a <div> then you have to write all HTML inside that tag, with <p> and all. So for example, on the Download page, unless we get ride of the <div>s, the content will still be mostly in HTML :(

For the few HTML pages that might still need convertion, let's do this on a page by page basis when it makes sense and not as a dedicated ticket.
