+ Select the Markdown/Smarty Pants text want to convert, or (if it's 
the whole document) skip this step
+ Hit Option+Shift+R to launch the "Filter Through Command..." dialogue
+ Place the path to your markdown.pl or SmartyPants.pl in the "Command" 
field/pull-down (mine's in "/usr/local/bin/markdown.pl")
+ Choose "Selection" or "Document" for Input
+ Choose your Output option. I usually do "Replace selection," "Replace 
document" or "Place on clipboard"
+ Make sure you have your safety goggles on  :)
+ Click "Execute"

Hope this helps. This could easily be made into a Macro as well.

OT: how did you get HTMLtidy working?
