Markdown should support HTML

Just markdown sometimes falls short of the things we'd like to do with our markdown files. For instance, we find it very useful to document the color palette for our projects in their respective README.md files, so we use stuff like this:

### Millennials Theme

| Font Color |  Hex Code  |  Sample  |
| ---------- |:----------:|:--------:|
| Dark Cyan  | #0097A7 | <div style="background-color:#0097A7;width:20px;height:20px">&nbsp;</div> |
| Cyan       | #00BCD4 | <div style="background-color:#00BCD4;width:20px;height:20px">&nbsp;</div> |
| Blue       | #2196f3 | <div style="background-color:#2196f3;width:20px;height:20px">&nbsp;</div> |
| Dark Grey  | #51626f | <div style="background-color:#51626f;width:20px;height:20px">&nbsp;</div> |
| Light Grey | #89a2b6 | <div style="background-color:#89a2b6;width:20px;height:20px">&nbsp;</div> |

This just doesn't render well in Bitbucket. Github.com does support HTML and Atom's Markdown preview plugin does as well, so we're used to that and this is a bit frustrating.
