Extended formatting

Extended formatting

To give you more flexibility in formatting your text and graphics, we use the markdown formatting language. With this language, you can do simple formatting of your text and add hyperlinks, images or simple tables.

Examples

Italic, bold and underlined text

If you want some words to be styled italic or bold, use underscores around the words like _italic_ and __bold__ . For underlining use <u> and </u>.

For example:

The following _will be italic_.

And these words __will be bold__ or <u>underlined</u>.

will be formatted as:

The following will be italic.

And these words will be bold or underlined.

Line break (hard return)

Use <br> to break sentences so that their words will be on different lines.

For example:

Lines are by default
are already broken into different
rows and bound together in paragraphs.

If you want <br> to break it,
do this <br> by using __< br >__.

will be formatted as:

Lines are by default
are already broken into different
rows and bound together in paragraphs.

If you want
to break it,
do this
by using < br >.

Headers and titles

With the # character, you can turn a line of text in to a header.

For example:

# Main header #
First paragraph

## Smaller header ##
Second paragraph

### Even smaller header ###
Third paragraph

will be formatted as:

Main header

First paragraph

Smaller header

Second paragraph

Even smaller header

Third paragraph

Insert images

If you hosted your image already online and it has an internet address (url), you can add it to your formatting. Use the formating [title](image url)

For example:

![Image title](http://www.aanmelder.nl/resources/logo_aanmelder.nl.png)

will be formatted as:

Image title

Bullet lists

To organize a list of items, you can start each line with - or * and the items will be formatted as bullets.

For example:

- item 1
- item 2
    - sub-item 2.1
    - sub-item 2.2
- item 3

will be formatted as:

  • item 1
  • item 2
    • sub-item 2.1
    • sub-item 2.2
  • item 3

Numbered lists

If you like your list to be numbered, use 1. item 2. item2 etc.

For example:

1. item 1
2. item 2
    1. subitem
    2. subitem
3. item 3

will be formatted as:

  1. item 1
  2. item 2
    1. subitem
    2. subitem
  3. item 3

Hyperlinks

You can create links with [link text](url)

For example:

Go to [aanmelder.nl home](http://www.aanmelder.nl)

will be formatted as:

Email hyperlink

You can create links that start an email with [text](mailto:email address)

For example:

Send an [email](mailto:example@example.com)

will be formatted as:

Send an email

Hyperlinks to other window.

Hyperlinks can also open pages in a new window by adding _blank after the URL. Note the space between the URL and _blank
