Noticeable posts are written using Markdown, an intuitive and human-readable syntax for marking up your documents with formatting, using punctuation and special characters. For those new to Markdown, this guide will help you become familiar.

Markdown Help

The most common formatting options have keyboard shortcuts to make them easier to add:

Bold**text**Ctrl/⌘ + b
Emphasize*text*Ctrl/⌘ + i
Underline++text++Ctrl/⌘ + Alt + u
Strike-through~~text~~Ctrl/⌘ + Alt + t
Link[label](https://)Ctrl/⌘ + Alt + l
Inline Code`code`Ctrl/⌘ + Alt + c
Image![alt](https://)Ctrl/⌘ + m
Ordered List1. itemCtrl/⌘ + Alt + n
Bulleted List* itemCtrl/⌘ + Alt + b
Blockquote> quoteCtrl/⌘ + q


Headers are set using a hash before the title. The number of hashes before the title text will determine the depth of the header. Header depths are from 1-6:

# h1 Heading
## h2 Heading
### h3 Heading
#### h4 Heading
##### h5 Heading
###### h6 Heading


**This is bold text**

*This is italic text*

~~Deleted text~~

Superscript: 19^th^

Subscript: H~2~O

==Marked text==

++Underlined text++


Blockquotes start with a greater-than sign:

> Blockquotes can also be nested... 
>> by using additional greater-than signs



+ Create a list by starting a line with `+`, `-`, or `*`
+ Sub-lists are made by indenting 2 spaces:
  - Marker character change forces new list start:
    * Ac tristique libero volutpat at
    + Facilisis in pretium nisl aliquet
    - Nulla volutpat aliquam velit
+ Very easy!


1. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet
2. Consectetur adipiscing elit

1. You can use sequential numbers...
1. ...or keep all the numbers as `1.`

Start numbering with offset:

57. foo
1. bar


Inline code can be added using single back-ticks: `2+3`.

For code blocks, you can indent code lines with 4 spaces:

var foo = function (bar) {
  return bar++;

or uses triple back-ticks ```, optionally followed by the language name:

var foo = function (bar) {
    return bar++;
