Send this pull request to clean up white spaces, indentation, and trailing slashes. https://github.com/FFmpeg/FFV1/pull/12

Github's markdown rendering is a little different than pandoc's rendering. Some table updates were done here: https://github.com/FFmpeg/FFV1/pull/11 <https://github.com/FFmpeg/FFV1/pull/11>. There's still the header which starts with percent signs, this is a workaround to get pandoc to render that as a header but to not include it within the table of contents.

Unless I'm missing something, Github doesn't seem to support rendering latex style equations in markdown (although pandoc does) so we may not be able to have a markdown that can be fully rendered by Github alone (unless we remove the need for latex). Perhaps the ffv1.md could occasionally be rendered (via the makefile) with the outputs updated on ffmpeg.org <http://ffmpeg.org/>. Then within the README of the FFV1 repo we could link to the rendered copy on ffmpeg.org <http://ffmpeg.org/>.
