Markdown

Markdown is a clean way to format your texts without the need for HTML knowledge or in case a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) interface is not available, which is the situation on explorer.land. Using symbols like hyphen, asterisk or apostrophe, you will be able to use the most important formats in your text.

In this document, you will learn how to use the most important formats.

Headers

Use the hash symbol to define headers:

# H1
## H2
### H3

results in

H1

H2

H3


Emphasis

Using asterisks or underscores allows formatting text as italic or bold.

Emphasis, aka italics, with *asterisks* or _underscores_.
Strong emphasis, aka bold, with **asterisks** or __underscores__.

The result looks like

Emphasis, aka italics, with asterisks or underscores.
Strong emphasis, aka bold, with asterisks or underscores.


Lists

For unordered lists use an asterisk followed by a space and the text to generate bullet points.

* First list item 
* Second list item 
  • First list item
  • Second list item

For ordered lists use a number followed by a point and space. It does not matter which number you use.
