Markdown for comments
The comments system on this website uses Markdown. Markdown is a plain text to HTML converter, relying on standardised but natural formatting syntax in the plain text. See below for examples of Markdown usage:
*italic* **bold** _italic_ __bold__
An [example](http://example.com/ "Title")
Reference-style labels (titles are optional):
An [example][id]. Then, anywhere else in the doc, define the link: [id]: http://example.com/ "Title"
Wrap any URL in angle brackets and it will autolink, e.g:
Ordered, without paragraphs:
1. Foo 2. Bar
Unordered, with paragraphs:
* A list item * Another list item
* A list item * A nested list item * Another list item 1. Ordered list item #1 2. Ordered list item #2 * The last list item
> Email-style angle brackets > are used for blockquotes. > > And, they can be nested. > #### Headers in blockquotes > > * You can quote a list. > * Etc.
`<code>` spans are delimited by backticks. You can include literal backticks like `` `this` ``.
Preformatted code blocks
Indent every line of a code block by at least 4 spaces or 1 tab.
This is a normal paragraph. This is a preformatted code block.
