Is there a list of possible markdown for Patchwork?
Patchwork messages can be written with markdown, but what specific flavor or dialect of markdown? I want a style guide!
Here you go!
*** Emphasis, aka italics, with *asterisks* or _underscores_. Strong emphasis, aka bold, with **asterisks** or __underscores__. Combined emphasis with **asterisks and _underscores_**. Strikethrough uses two tildes. ~~Scratch this.~~ 1. First ordered list item 2. Another item * Unordered sub-list. 1. Actual numbers don't matter, just that it's a number 1. Ordered sub-list 4. And another item. Some text that should be aligned with the above item. * Unordered list can use asterisks - Or minuses + Or pluses [I'm an inline-style link](https://www.google.com) [I'm a reference-style link][Arbitrary case-insensitive reference text] [You can use numbers for reference-style link definitions] Or leave it empty and use the [link text itself] URLs and URLs in angle brackets will automatically get turned into links. http://www.example.com or <http://www.example.com> and sometimes example.com (but not on Github, for example). Some text to show that the reference links can follow later. arbitrary case-insensitive reference text]: https://www.mozilla.org : http://slashdot.org [link text itself]: http://www.reddit.com
