[IPython-dev] Custom cell types for markup

I would like to add a custom cell type for formatted documentation.
Instead of just Markdown, I would like to be able to use POD

Now, I understand that having a custom format will lead to portability
issues, but would it be possible to have something where the cell type
is POD, but the notebook contains both the POD source and pre-generated
HTML output that can be rendered by nbviewer?

Is there an example of something similar? Perhaps I can do this all in
JavaScript, but I don't know of any JavaScript POD parsers.
