If you're really able to go with "something similar" then look at the docutils 
project (http://docutils.sf.net/ ... start with the "primer" document). It's 
like StructuredText, but much better in a lot of ways (see that website for 
detail if you need it). The above text would be written with a minor 
change... the heading would be:

Header
------

instead of **Header** (which denotes generic bolding in ReStructuredText).
