Markdown is a lightweight markup language with plain text formatting syntax. Its design allows it to be converted to many output formats, but the original tool by the same name only supports HTML. Markdown is often used to format readme files, for writing messages in online discussion forums, and to create rich text using a plain text editor.


# This is an `<h1>` tag

## This is an `<h2>` tag

Code and Syntax Highlighting

Inline `code`

Blocks of code are either fenced by lines with three back-ticks ```, or are indented with four spaces. I recommend only using the fenced code blocks -- they're easier and only they support syntax highlighting.

function fancyAlert(arg) {
  if (arg) {
    $.facebox({ div: "#foo" });

Color Models

Only supported in issues, pull requests, and discussions

`rgb(9, 105, 218)`
`hsl(212, 92%, 45%)`


| Syntax | Description |
| ------ | ----------- |
| Header | Title       |

| Paragraph | Text |

Inline HTML

  <dd>Is something people use sometimes.</dd>

  <dt>Markdown in HTML</dt>
  <dd>Does *not* work **very** well. Use HTML <em>tags</em>.</dd>

Horizontal Rule

Three or more of these (any):
... Periods
*** Asterisks
--- Hypens
___ Underscores

Line Breaks

There’s no such thing as a “line break” in Markdown. If you want a line break, you end the line with two or more spaces, then type return.

This is the first line.
This is the second line.

  Text goes here


Here is a simple footnote[^1].

A footnote can also have multiple lines[^2].  

You can also use words, to fit your writing style more closely[^note].

[^1]: My reference.
[^2]: Every new line should be prefixed with 2 spaces.  
  This allows you to have a footnote with multiple lines.
    Named footnotes will still render with numbers instead of the text but allow easier identification and linking.  
    This footnote also has been made with a different syntax using 4 spaces for new lines.
