Line Breaks

Markdown ignores traditional line breaks. To display a line break in your post, place two spaces at the end of the line, or use a double line break to start a new paragraph.

Horizontal Rule

If you'd like to break up your panel with a horizontal rule, create a separate paragraph with 5 or more asterisks (*****).

Block Quotes

If you'd like to place quotes in your panel, use the greater than symbol (>). Multiple greater than symbols may be used to nest block quotes.

>Oh look, a quote!   Oh look, a quote!
>>And a nested quote!     And a nested quote!


Markdown supports two types of lists: ordered and unordered.

Unordered Lists

Place either a plus (+), dash (-), or asterisk (*) and a space before each item on your list. These can be mixed and matched as well.
What You Type What You Get
  + Item 1      
  - Item 2
  * Item 3
  •   Item 1
  •   Item 2
  •   Item 3

Ordered Lists

An ordered list works essentially the same way, only you preface each item with a number, a period and a space. It doesn't matter will always start with the number 1, so it doesn't matter which numbers you use, even.
What You Type What You Get
  1. Item 1      
  2. Item 2
  3. Item 3
  1.   Item 1
  2.   Item 2
  3.   Item 3
