Indent four spaces to create an escaped
printf("goodbye world!"); /* his suicide note was in C */
The text will be wrapped in tags, and displayed in a monospaced font. The first four spaces will be stripped off, but all other whitespace will be preserved.
Markdown and HTML is ignored within a code block:
<blink> You would hate this if it weren't wrapped in a code block. </blink>
Fenced code blocks are like Markdown’s regular code blocks, except that they’re not indented.
The code block start with a line containing three or more tilde ~ characters, and ends with the first line with the same number of tilde ~.
~~~ printf("goodbye world!"); /* his suicide note was in C */ ~~~
Code can be highlighted for a particular language by adding
the intial tilde ~ fence.
~~~ [php] echo 'hello world'; ~~~
Use backticks to create an inline
Press the `<Tab>` key, then type a `$`.
(The backtick key is in the upper left corner of most keyboards.)
Like code blocks, code spans will be displayed in a monospaced font. Markdown and HTML will not work within them. Note that, unlike code blocks, code spans require you to manually escape any HTML within!
End a line with two spaces to add a
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways
*This is italicized*, and so is _this_. **This is bold**, and so is __this__. Use ***italics and bold together*** if you ___have to___.
There are three ways to write links. Each is easier to read than the last:
Here's an inline link to [Google](http://www.google.com/). Here's a reference-style link to [Google]. Here's a very readable link to [Yahoo!][yahoo]. : http://www.google.com/ [yahoo]: http://www.yahoo.com/
The link definitions can appear anywhere in the document -- before or after the
place where you use them. The link definition names
[yahoo] can be any unique string, and are case-insensitive;
[yahoo] is the same as
You can also use standard HTML hyperlink syntax.
<a href="http://example.com" title="example">example</a>
Enclosing them in angle brackets.
Have you seen <http://example.com>?
All URLs must be fully qualified path names. We do not support relative paths.
A shortcut to API documentation link can be done as follows:
API documenation on [CDbConnection::createPdoInstance()].This will generate a link CDbConnection::createPdoInstance() to the latest API documentation.
Underline text to make the two
top-level headers :
Header 1 ======== Header 2 --------
The number of = or - signs doesn't matter; one will work. But using enough to underline the text makes your titles look better in plain text.
- Use a minus sign for a bullet + Or plus sign * Or an asterisk

Preformatted text in a blockquote:
