The basic idea of markdown is a “counterpart” of markup languages:

+ Markup languagues : using extra XML (for example HTML) -> text content

+ Markdown languages: using text -> content with format (HTML)

Basically, it’s like a syntax language to generate text -> HTML . So, if you have used some HTML Editor with text syntax (like when you using some Wiki editor to write – Confluence, Dokuwiki, Redmine, Trac, …) , you already use some markdown language.

Markdown syntax, is a specific one, and it has been adopted widely (especially on GitHub), not depending on a single wiki product. Now it’s more popular and has some implementations/variants which can be embedded in applications easily.

Some basic syntax of official Markdown (extensions .md, .markdown, .MD) :


# This is an


## This is an


###### This is an

(nghĩa là tương ứng HTML h1 -> h7 , tùy theo số lượng # ở đầu, riêng H1 còn có thể dùng dạng 1 dòng ở dưới nhiều dấu = sát nhau, VD:  raw )



*This text will be italic*
_This will also be italic_

**This text will be bold**
__This will also be bold__

_You **can** combine them_



* Item 1
* Item 2
  * Item 2a
  * Item 2b


1. Item 1
1. Item 2
1. Item 3
   1. Item 3a
   1. Item 3b

I think you should use an
`` element here instead.

Đã có những định dạng “reversed markup” khác cạnh tranh với MarkDown:

+ ReStructuredText // (thường .rst )

+ AsciiDoc // (thường .adoc )

Ngoài ra, Textile ( ) – được xem là tiên phong truyền cảm hứng cho Markdown – cũng còn được sử dụng khá nhiều, nổi bật là các sản phẩm JIRA, Redmine, Jekyll, BaseCamp classic, …
