    What is Markdown?

    Markdown is a way to style text on the web. You control the display of the document; formatting words as bold or italic, adding images, and creating lists are just a few of the things we can do with Markdown. Mostly, Markdown is just regular text with a few non-alphabetic characters thrown in, like # or *.


    # This is an <h1> tag
    ## This is an <h2> tag
    ###### This is an <h6> tag


    *This text will be italic*
    _This will also be italic_
    **This text will be bold**
    __This will also be bold__
    _You **can** combine them_

    Lists (Unordered)

    * Item 1
    * Item 2
      * Item 2a
      * Item 2b

    Lists (Ordered)

    1. Item 1
    1. Item 2
    1. Item 3
       1. Item 3a
       1. Item 3b


    ![Your Image Name](
    Format: ![Alt Text](url)

    Links - automatic!

    Inline code

    I think you should use an
    `<addr>` element here instead.

    Syntax highlighting

    function fancyAlert(arg) {
      if(arg) {
    function fancyAlert(arg) {
       if(arg) {

    Here’s an example of Python code without syntax highlighting:

    def foo():
        if not bar:
            return True

    Task Lists

    - [x] @mentions, #refs, [links](), **formatting**, and <del>tags</del> supported
    - [x] list syntax required (any unordered or ordered list supported)
    - [x] this is a complete item
    - [ ] this is an incomplete item

    Horizontal Rules

    You can produce a horizontal rule tag (<hr />) by placing three or more hyphens, asterisks, or underscores on a line by themselves. If you wish, you may use spaces between the hyphens or asterisks. Each of the following lines will produce a horizontal rule:

    * * *
    - - -


    Markdown table syntax is quite simple. It does not allow row or cell spanning as well as putting multi-line text in a cell. The first row is always the header followed by an extra line with dashes "-" and optional colons ":" for forcing column alignment.

    | Tables   |      Are      |  Cool |
    | col 1 is |  left-aligned | $1600 |
    | col 2 is |    centered   |   $12 |
    | col 3 is | right-aligned |    $1 |
    Tables Are Cool
    col 1 is left-aligned $1600
    col 2 is centered $12
    col 3 is right-aligned $1
