Noted. But it seems to be the syntax the screenwriters and their programmers have settled on for now. It's all working pretty well. Just no Python or command-line implementations yet. I didn't post seeking help to make a new markdown system for screenwriters. That would surely be out of my league.

Sorry if I was unclear. Sure. I have several programs like this and yes we use them once production starts, but it's nice to be able to work in your text editor for as long as possible. Faster. More versatility. So everybody is looking for a fast way to make PDFs in screenplay format from simple markdown text.

No, but I may. Especially if those regexes in the Ruby script will work in Python. I'll try.
