Editing rich content

Markdown lets you write content with links, lists, and other styles using regular characters and punctuation marks. It doesn't require a lot of time to learn. Here are the basics:

  • Add headers with # Title or ## Subtitle
  • Style with *Emphasize* and **Strong**: EmphasizeandStrong
  • Link with [SmartShape]( SmartShape
  • Include external images with ![Title](

All the details are explained on the Markdown page on Wikipedia.
