No doubt this post is good for some one who is beginning to build a website. But this post expects people to do their pages in html. github supports simple markdown pages to be hosted as html.

markdown is clear and easy to write posts. If this post extends to teach hosting markdown pages, one can use the website built using this tool to make his own blog. This might help people more than teaching just to create a website.!

As someone that knows some HTML, I hate having to learn another markdown for ever wiki site that I end up using. (Saying that WYSWIG editors seem to be more common than a few years ago for this task).
