Example #1 Basic Zend_Markup Usage
We will first instantiate a Zend_Markup_Renderer_Html object using the Zend_Markup::factory() method. This will also create a Zend_Markup_Parser_Bbcode object which will be added to the renderer object.
Afther that, we will use the render() method to convert a piece of BBCode to HTML.
Example #2 A more complicated example of Zend_Markup
This time, we will do exactly the same as above, but with more complicated BBCode markup.
