Markdown plus h2 with a custom ID ## {#id-goes-here}

Link back to H2

This is a paragraph, which is text surrounded by whitespace. Paragraphs can be on one line (or many), and can drone on for hours.

Here is a Markdown link to Warped, and a literal . Now some SimpleLinks, like one to [google] (automagically links to are-you- feeling-lucky), a [wiki: test] link to a Wikipedia page, and a link to [foldoc: CPU]s at foldoc.

Now some inline markup like italics, bold, and code(). Note that underscores in words are ignored in Markdown Extra.

Blockquotes are like quoted text in email replies

And, they can be nested

  • Bullet lists are easy too
  • Another one
  • Another one
  1. A numbered list
  2. Which is numbered
  3. With periods and a space

And now some code:

// Code is just text indented a bit
which(is_easy) to_remember();

// Markdown extra adds un-indented code blocks too

if (this_is_more_code == true && !indented) {
    // tild wrapped code blocks, also not indented

Text with
two trailing spaces
(on the right)
can be used
for things like poems

Horizontal rules

This is a div wrapping some Markdown plus. Without the DIV attribute, it ignores the block.

Markdown plus tables

  • Outer pipes on tables are optional
  • Colon used for alignment (right versus left)

Markdown plus definition lists

Bottled water $ 1.25 $ 1.55 (Large)

Milk Pop : $ 1.75

  • Multiple definitions and terms are possible
  • Definitions can include multiple paragraphs too
