Headings can start with 1-6 hashes

Markdown follows plain text conventions when rendering HTML.

So paragraphs separated by multiple lines are rendered as separate paragraphs.

Use more hashes to create nested sub headings

Text pre-fixed with '>' are treated as block quotes

Use a dash, asterisk or plus to create an ordered list:

  • List Item
  • List Item
  • List Item

Whilst you can use numbers for ordered lists:

  1. Step 1
  2. Step 2
  3. Step 3

Indent lines by 4 spaces to create pre-formatted code blocks in monospace font:

$ cd /Users/Guest
