Hi,

On the page

  https://orgmode.org/manual/Markdown-export.html

the second line reads:

  Since md is built on top of the HTML back-end, any Org constructs not
  supported by Markdown, such as tables, the underlying html back-end
  (see HTML export) converts them.

My guess is that this should be

  Since md is built on top of the HTML back-end, any Org constructs not
  supported by Markdown, such as tables, are converted by the underlying
  html back-end (see HTML export).

However, I still don't understand what it means, so maybe my guess is
incorrect.

In any case, what will an Org table be converted to in the MD output?

Cheers,

Loris

Org tables get exported as an html table.

I reworded the paragrpah. Thank you. The new introduction is:

    The Markdown export back-end, "md", converts an Org file to Markdown
    format, as defined at http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/.

    Since it is built on top of the HTML back-end (see [[*HTML Export]]), it
    converts every Org construct not defined in Markdown syntax, such as
    tables, to HTML.

Thank you.  The meaning is now perfectly clear.

Cheers,
