Markdown syntax highlighting for Sublime Text 2

I use Monokai Dark, a custom version, which comes with the soda theme.

Markdown syntax highlighting wasn't working with my color scheme.

I found this gist.

you just open your theme.tmTheme file and paste it at the end before the <array> then it should work like a charm.

here is the gist just in case you don't feel like going to the source

<!-- copy this to YOUR_THEME.tmTheme-->
  <dict>
        <key>name</key>
        <string>diff: deleted</string>
