Security for embedded HTML

Markdown allows HTML to be intermixed with markup to enhanced rendering capabilities. However, allowing embedded HTML can be a security exposure on your site if untrusted users have access. All Markdown macros have an allowHtml parameter. This parameter can only be used if Macro Security for Confluence has been installed and configured to allow the parameter to be turned on.
