# Markdown template style guide
While Markdown is a relatively standard way to specify formatting, the devil is always in the details -- how do you separate sections? Do you use h2 or h3 for subsections?
This is our attempt to agree on a way to format all the Markdown pads so that we get beautiful outputs.
* **h1** is used only for the title of the pad on the first line * **h2** for section titles * **h3** for subsection titles * (but what's really a section and a subsection? where are the boundaries? how sub can you get? har har) (use `#` at the start of the line for a header. The number of `#` specifies the header level, e.g. `###` for h3.)
We're using automatic links from Pandoc's Markdown implementation, e.g. <http://duckduckgo.com>. This is so that printed PDF show the actual URL and not just the underlined title.
Use this Markdownsyntax: (the spaces are important) (If you are reading this on the etherpad, do *not* include the "backticks" (` ` `)
You can also use text as the footnote tag, e.g. `[^survivalguide]`.
## Formatting reminders
* **bold** text * _italic_ text * ~~strikethrough~~ text * **_bold & italic_** * headers * `#` Heading level 1 * `##` Heading level 2 * `###` Heading level 3 * `####` Heading level 4 * `#####` Heading level 5 * `######` Heading level 6 * lists, just like this one * indented lists * are fun and * there's no end to the nesting * code blocks appear in `monospace` * line-breaks ` ` - add two empty spaces in the end of the line
