Preview Markdown Files from Finder

As a mac user I use Preview (hover a file, hit space) all the time when browsing code and text files in Finder. However, Preview doesn't know how to handle a markdown (.md or .markdown) file. During an attempt to find a solution, an intense session of power Googling lead me to discover an interesting script: QLMarkdown.

QLMarkdown is is a simple QuickLook generator for Markdown files.

I found it in Support for Markdown in OSX on James Moss' blog, where he also explains how to install it. It works flawlessly and is definitely an asset if markdown is your preferred tool for writing.
