  • What is Markdown? How can I use this?

    Markdown is a text-to-HTML tool, created by John Gruber and Aaron Swartz with objective to simplify the formatation and be easily converted to HTML. The URI Forum use this tool to facilitate the conversation between users throught topics and replies on problems.

    The sintaxe is really simple.

    *italic* : italic;

    **bold** : bold;

    ~crossed~ : crossed;

    These three options doesn't work in text blocks. To put all paragraph in italic, for example, you need to put an * on the start and the end of each line.

    ```

    This is a

    block code

    ```

        This is a
