A Mneumonic Poem For Learning Markdown Syntax

Headlines start with hashes

  • List items lead with dashes

To use numbering instead

  1. Type a digit and dot ahead

Please...

...indent code blocks 4 spaces

Bracket link names, avoid braces

Or begin them with a bang

Where an image is to hang

Parentheses straddle a URL

Two stars set off what you must yell

Blockquotes follow a right arrow

Use backticks when code is narrow

  • Insert blanks when in frustration

    And align your indentation.

Markdown code for the poem above:

###Headlines start with hashes

 -  List items lead with dashes

To use numbering instead

 1. Type a digit and dot ahead

Please...

    ...indent code blocks 4 spaces

Bracket [link names](http://my-link-URL-goes-here), avoid braces

Or begin them with a bang

Where an ![image](http://my-image-URL-goes-here) is to hang

Parentheses straddle a [URL](http://my-link-URL-goes-here)

Two stars set off what **you must yell**

> Blockquotes follow a right arrow

Use backticks when `code is narrow`

 -   Insert blanks when in frustration

     And align your indentation.
