I’ve been asked a few times recently what the recommended UTI is for Markdown-formatted text and text files. Here’s the answer:
net.daringfireball.markdown, which conforms to
public.text. The encoding should always be UTF-8.
Now that a lot of Mac and iOS software have built-in support for Markdown, it’d be less confusing if everyone used the same UTI.
