<!--- HEADING --->
# Header 1 #
## Header 2 ##
### Header 3 ### (Hashes on right are optional)
#### Header 4 ####
##### Header 5 #####
## Markdown plus h2 with a custom ID ## {#id-goes-here}
[Link back to H2](#id-goes-here)
<!--- CONTENT -->
This is a paragraph, which is text surrounded by whitespace. Paragraphs can be on one
line (or many), and can drone on for hours.
<!--- CONTENT FORMATTING --->
Now some inline markup like _italics_, **bold**, and `code()`. Note that underscores in
words are ignored in Markdown Extra.
<!--- LINKS --->
Here is a Markdown link to [Warped](http://warpedvisions.org), and a literal .
Now some SimpleLinks, like one to [google] (automagically links to are-you-
feeling-lucky), a [wiki: test] link to a Wikipedia page, and a link to
[foldoc: CPU]s at foldoc.
<!--- IMAGES --->
![picture alt](/images/photo.jpeg "Title is optional")
<!--- BLOCKQUOTES -->
> Blockquotes are like quoted text in email replies
>> And, they can be nested
<!--- LISTS --->
* Bullet lists are easy too
- Another one
+ Another one
1. A numbered list
2. Which is numbered
3. With periods and a space
<!--- CODE FORMAT --->
And now some code:
// Code is just text indented a bit
which(is_easy) to_remember();
~~~
// Markdown extra adds un-indented code blocks too
if (this_is_more_code == true && !indented) {
// tild wrapped code blocks, also not indented
}
~~~
Text with
two trailing spaces
(on the right)
can be used
for things like poems
### Horizontal rules
* * * *

<div class="custom-class" markdown="1">
This is a div wrapping some Markdown plus. Without the DIV attribute, it ignores the
block.

You can make nested lists by writing a space before the * .

E.g.:

* Level 1
 * Level 2

becomes

  • Level 1
    • Level 2

How different is this from Github-flavored markdown?
