pelican: How to embed html and javascript in markdown

I want to embed a few html elements and javascript in a blog post. This is my markdown file.

Title: Foo
Tags: Bar

Some Content here

<div id="foo">
</div>

<script type="text/javascript" src="static/js/bar.js"> </script>


But pelican is wrapping the html tags in a
pre
. So the code is not getting executed.

I'm using the Markdown library installed from
pip install Markdown
, version 2.3.1

I checked the docs, but to no avail.

How to avoid this from happening, either through markdown or in a pelican setting?

Answer

Probably the reason its not working is that you've indented your code, which means that it gets inserted as a <code> block in the HTML, according to the Markdown spec: daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax#precode
