Quickbook is a markup language, so to use it effectively you have to
mark up text. If that's a problem, then maybe it isn't the right
solution for you.

It's not hard, but it's the wrong thing to do. Multiple dialects can
cause all sorts of problems. The only dialect switch in quickbook is
the version switch, and that's only there for backwards compatibility
(and it's problematic enough - it's a bit buggy for included files).
