Learning Markdown

My first attempt at markdown

Having come across markdown some time ago, I’ve decided to give it a try. This post is basically my attempt at using as many of the tags as possible. At least those I’m likely to need.


  • More control over how how posts look
  • To be able to emphasise things in plain text
  • Because I prefer using plain text email

As Gruber says:

Markdown’s syntax is intended for one purpose: to be used as a format for writing for the web

I’m hoping I can get used to it. The last thing I need is to give myself another roadblock to writing.

edit: I didn’t get the list stuff correct the first time around
