|Summary||0027906: Support inline preview of .md attachments as rendered markdown, not plain text|
Mantis is currently able to show inline previews of .md files as plain text. Which is great.
But since mantis already has the ability to render markdown, perhaps the inline display of .md attachments could be rendered as markdown, instead of as plain text.
I've attached a random markdown file here to illustrate.

Just some thoughts in case someone should start working on this.
Markdown rendering is not supported by browsers, thus we can't implement it similar to the existing Audio or Video preview.
Markdown is not standardized, but comes in different flavors, e.g. GitHub Flavored Markdown.
We should not loose the functionality to copy / paste the plain text of the attached file.
