No, you did not waste your time. In fact , I had read the link info and examined your markdown attachment carefully. I meant to thank you for your effort but something got in between - lazy maybe.
My original reply was to Kovid. After reading the documentation this statement made me wonder; "by default calibre only groups lines in the input document into paragraphs. The default is to assume one or more blank lines are a paragraph boundary:"
Here is my quibble - why group lines into only paragraphs. Why not into paragraphs and single lines? It is certainly possible and then markdowns would only be necessary if you wanted to add other basic formatting.
By the way, showing that it could be done was what all that focus on CR and LF was all about - which was the issue.
