See In that reference, creator talk about HTML tags support.

Markdown can be configured to produce HTML-style tags; e.g.:

Why BitBucket Wikis hasn't that? I want to add

    Hi Zlatan,

    In your referenced text, I believe the author is referring to the ability to configure whether markdown produces xhtml-style tabs (<br/>) or html-style (<br>), not about writing html directly in Markdown.

    At this time, we have no plans to support user-generated html.

    Cheers, Zach

    As stated above, at this time, we have no plans to support user-generated HTML. By implementing these constraints, we're better able to ensure that wiki content is displayed in a sensible manner.

    If your wiki page requires the use of tables, I would recommend that you use one of our other available syntaxes. Both Creole and reStructuredText define them in their specs.

    It would be very useful to be able to do my own HTML in markdown. Currently for example I can't (or don't know how to) control the size of the images I put on my markdown pages. Can't you disallow javascript so there's no security issue? Or at least provide your own (subset of) daringfireball markdown documentation or something similar that describes what you do and don't support? Your markdown docs link points right to the full daringfireball docs, which indicate fairly nice HTML support.

    Would like to be able to use html comments (<!-- Comment -->) to easily comment out some parts. This would allow to use MarkdownTOC, which is more customizable than [TOC].
