Markdown is an editing language converted from HTML which allows you to format text using plain text.
Here's how it looks:
Use asterisks to create bold or italicized words.
Headers are defined by preceding your text with one or more # corresponding to header levels.
# A Heading
## A Subheading
### A Sub-subheading
The text is inside the brackets is the alternate text that is displayed when the user hovers their mouse over the image, and the link is an online place for that image.

The link inside the parentheses should be an link to the image online.
Use numbers or asterisks for lists:
1. Pineapple 2. Canadian Bacon
