A full list of markdown options can be seen at this link
Here are some simple examples
You can create a heading by adding one or more # symbols before your heading text. The number of # you use will determine the size of the heading.
# The largest heading (an <h1> tag)
## The second largest heading (an <h2> tag)
### The third largest heading (an <h3> tag)
Bold and Italic
You can make text bold or italic.
*This text will be italic*
**This text will be bold**
Both bold and italic can use either a \* or an \_ around the text for styling. This allows you to combine both bold and italic if needed.
**Everyone _must_ attend the meeting at 5 o'clock today.**
Showdown supports ordered (numbered) and unordered (bulleted) lists.
You can make an unordered list by preceding list items with either a *, a - or a +. Markers are interchangeable too.
