Full markdown support in Chat

It would be nice if the Chat window had full markdown support. Currently, it appears to intentionally not render markdown headers, as discussed here.

I agree that most people would not type markdown headers in a chat but LLMs might. As chatbots are becoming more common, it would be nice if any markdown sent by an LLM displayed correctly in the Chat window.

With RAG support bots in particular, the LLM receives raw post content from topics which may contain markdown headers. If it includes those headers in the chat reply, they don't work as is.
