Miniature Markdown Guide
This is a quick crash course; for a full syntax guide, you can see http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax. Many other ways exist for marking up each of the examples.
Code blocks' first lines may be indented. Assume text you see starts at the beginning of the line.
Headings can be denoted with 1 or more equals signs beneath.
Horizontal rules can be denoted with 3 or more asterisks.
Links can be denoted with square brackets enclosing the link text, and parentheses enclosing the URL.
Ordered lists can be denoted with numbers followed by a period. The actual numbers don't matter.
1. example 2. more examples 90. even more examples
- more examples
- even more examples
Unordered lists can be denoted with asterisks, plus signs, or hyphens. Your choice of any of these three will not affect the display.
* list item + more list items - even more list items
- list item
- more list items
- even more list items
Text can be italicized with single asterisk, and made bold with two.
Backslashes can be used to escape unwanted behavior.
