Want to format your posts on the discussion board? You can make bulleted lists, number lists, bold, italics, links or embed images in your posts using markdown.
Markdown allows you to write using an easy-to-read, easy-to-write plain text format, which then converts to valid HTML for viewing on HeatSpring.
Markdown is totally optional and only necessary if you want special formatting applied to your message.
