# An h1 header

Paragraphs are separated by a blank line.

2nd paragraph. Italic, bold, and monospace. Itemized lists look like:

• this one
• that one
• the other one

Note that — not considering the asterisk — the actual text content starts at 4-columns in.

Block quotes are written like so.

They can span multiple paragraphs, if you like.

Use 3 dashes for an em-dash. Use 2 dashes for ranges (ex., “it’s all in chapters 12–14”). Three dots … will be converted to an ellipsis. Unicode is supported. ☺

## An h2 header

Here’s a numbered list:

1. first item
2. second item
3. third item

Note again how the actual text starts at 4 columns in (4 characters from the left side). Here’s a code sample:

# Let me re-iterate ...
for i in 1 .. 10 { do-something(i) }


As you probably guessed, indented 4 spaces. By the way, instead of indenting the block, you can use delimited blocks, if you like:

 1 2 3  define foobar() { print "Welcome to flavor country!"; } 

(which makes copying & pasting easier). You can optionally mark the delimited block for Pandoc to syntax highlight it:

 1 2 3 4 5 6  import time # Quick, count to ten! for i in range(10): # (but not *too* quick) time.sleep(0.5) print i 

### An h3 header

Now a nested list:

1. First, get these ingredients:

• carrots
• celery
• lentils
2. Boil some water.

3. Dump everything in the pot and follow this algorithm:

find wooden spoon
uncover pot
stir
cover pot
balance wooden spoon precariously on pot handle
wait 10 minutes
goto first step (or shut off burner when done)


Do not bump wooden spoon or it will fall.

Notice again how text always lines up on 4-space indents (including that last line which continues item 3 above).

Here’s a link to a website, to a local doc, and to a section heading in the current doc. Here’s a footnote 1.

Tables can look like this:

sizematerialcolor
9leatherbrown
10hemp canvasnatural
11glasstransparent

Table: Shoes, their sizes, and what they’re made of

(The above is the caption for the table.)

A horizontal rule follows.

Here’s a definition list:

apples
Good for making applesauce.
oranges
Citrus!
tomatoes
There’s no “e” in tomatoe.

(Put a blank line between each term/definition pair to spread things out more.)

and images can be specified like so:

Inline math equations go in like so: $$\omega = d\phi / dt$$. Display math should get its own line and be put in in double-dollarsigns:

$$I = \int \rho R^{2} dV$$

And note that you can backslash-escape any punctuation characters which you wish to be displayed literally, ex.: foo, *bar*, etc.
