Org examples on github

Published on:

github has an org-mode parser for their README files, but I always thought it didn't handle #+BEGIN_SRC and #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE style blocks. And I'm not wrong, but it does handle : blocks.

So this won't work:

#+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  This is an example
#+END_EXAMPLE

But this will:

: This is an example

That was a nice surprise for me, because I prefer org-mode for almost all of my documents.
