Well, let's do a test of the various formatting tricks in Markdown to see how Parsedown handles them!

Level One Heading

Level Two Heading

Level Three Heading

How those actually look will depend on the CSS I have in place. Normally, post titles are done as H3 tags. So the above might look stupid. They probably all just look similar.

There's also an underlining style of headers, which I don't generally use, but let's try them anyway:

Level One

Level Two

Hopefully that worked!

This ought to be a blockquote. The CSS does some fancy quotes around the whole thing, but I'm not at all sure I like that anymore. In any case, I'm really just typing in enough stuff to make this block wrap around a few times, to show the actual blockquoting.

Unordered Lists

Ordered Lists

  1. So
  2. Are
  3. Numbered
  4. Bullet
  5. Lists
    1. With
    2. Sub-lists

Code Blocks

You can designate text as blocks of code and have them formatted appropriately, as below:

function Code_Blocks_are_Important() {
    echo "although ";
    echo "this ";
    echo "is ";
    echo "obviously ";
    for ($1=0; $i<10; $i++) {
        echo "really ";
    echo"just made up1\n";

You can also specify the language used and often get language-specific color coding, but not here, I think. The following is tagged as PHP code.

function PHP_Code_Blocks_are_Important() {
    echo "although ";
    echo "this ";
    echo "is ";
    echo "obviously ";
    for ($1=0; $i<10; $i++) {
        echo "really ";
    echo"just made up1\n";

Tables are
nice but
I don't
know how
to fix
that left
margin !!!

Inlines styles

Markdown supports a bunch on inline styles, so you can italicize things, or make them bold. You can even strike text out or say something should be rendered as code.


There are a few ways of doing links in Markdown. One way is to put the link right after the text being linked. So I could link to my Github Repositories that way. Another way is to put the actual link elsewhere in the document and refer to it. When rendered, you don't see anything different, so here's a link to my model for a QR code for this blog. These should look the same in the blog, but in the source, that hyperlink for the second one is at the end of the source.

You can also do internal linking in a document. So I should be able to make a link back to the top of the post. I don't know if this will work, as I'm doing a Github specific formatting for it.

HTML Entities

Markdown also does automatic replacement of HTML entities like < and > and " and &. These should all be replaced by the appropriate codes.

Horizontal Rules

Above this should be an horizontal rule. I have no idea how the formatting will make it look. I use these to separate posts, so it's not something I would normally put in-post.


And, finally, images! Here's one:
