Hello, We love the ability to document and describe software-defined assets using markdown. It seems like the Dagster is does not currently support mermaid in order to quickly add charts or diagram as code. Is there any plan to add support to mermaid in Dagit/Dagster ?
Here is the error message on attempting to add mermaid bloc in an asset description:

Hi! Big fan of mermaid myself. Where are you looking to define the diagrams? In an asset’s metadata? Mermaid support in most capacities isn't on our roadmap, but you're welcome to raise a GitHub issue and I can triage it to the UI team!

Hello Tim, I am talking about asset description. Maybe there is a better place to display such information in Dagster. Thanks for the update. I'll open a feature request.
