You can easily format text in assignments. We use Markdown for this. Markdown is a very simple and intuitive way to indicate styles. Here are the basics.
- Use an empty line to start a new paragraph. To add a line break, end the line with two spaces.
- To make a text italic, put it between * symbols. To make it bold put it between **.
- Start a main heading with # and a space. Start a secondary heading with ##, a tertiary heading with ###, et cetera.
- Start a block quote with > and a space.
- For a bullet list, start lines with - and a space. For a numbered list start lines with 1., 2., etc.
- Use --- to add a horizontal rule.
- For a link use: [title](https://www.example.com).
- Inline code is put between ` (back ticks). A block of code is put between triple back ticks: ```. If you want to use syntax highlighting in a particular programming language, put the name of the language after the first ```. For more information see the documentation on adding code.
Here is an example:
The result will look as follows:
