[Haskell-beginners] Literate Haskell in Markdown but not Bird style

Thanks. I wanted to use the fenced version like so.

myFunction :: Int -> String
-- some code goes here

I find that typing with the Bird style, I get lots of '>' left behind at 
the end of lines causing syntax problems before I compile. It also makes 
it harder for me to reformat the code. For example, 'unindent block' no 
longer works on my editor.
