Markdown quick start
See Daring Fireball's web site for fuller documentation .
General syntax: unmarked text is treated as paragraphs - two carriage returns signal the end of the paragraph. This means that you need to separate all blocks, including lists with a double carriage return for the markdown interpreter to start a new formatted block.
Use hashes (#) to specify headings
## Heading 2
### Heading 3, etc
Or use 'underlined' text to combine headings with underlining
Main heading underlined
Secondary heading underlined
Use dashes to specify bullet points
- Bullet 1
- Bullet 2
Number list items to specify numbered lists
1. List 1
2. List 2
Links are two part [link text](link url “Title”) - “Title” optional
[an example](http://example.com/ "Title")
Web addresses can be show as links by using <angle brackets>
Images like links but preceded by an exclamation
![Alt text](/path/to/img.jpg "Optional title")
So obviously you have to know the link to the image.
Emphasise with the asterisk
*single asterisks* - the equiavalent of italic
**double asterisks** - the equivalent of bold
Indents can be created with the >
> will indent this line one “tab”
> > will indent this two
You can use this to produce nested lists
To show a horizontal rule just put three asterisks on an otherwise blank line
If you need to show any of the above special characters as-is, precede them with a back-slash (\).
will show the asterisks (***) rather than the a horizontal rule
