What is Markdown

Markdown is a lightweight and easy-to-use syntax for styling. It uses non-alphabetic characters like # or * to mark which part of the text should be bold, or italic, etc.

Markdown is used in places, where it is not recommended to give full HTML control, but still allow clients to style their content and emphasize.

The most common are:

Example 1:

I want this **text to be bold**.

which will result in:

I want this text to be bold.

Example 2:

I want this _text to be italics_.

which will result in:

I want this text to be italics.

Example 3:

I want this [text to be linked](https://www.google.com/).

which will result in:

I want this text to be linked.
