Markdown

Markdown converts plain text into complex HTML. Certain characters are typed to denote headings, font style, etc. For example, a # that precedes text denotes a heading. Wrapping text in asterisks makes the text italicized. Simple, right?

iDo websites rely on Markdown to format your posts. So if you would like to emphasize a word or create a bulleted list, use the proper Markdown syntax. Below are some examples to help you get started.

The learning curve is short and well worth it. For more information, visit the Markdown Home Page or visit the interactive Markdown tutorial.
