Hawkee uses the most common form of Markdown with many GitHub elements such as fenced code and tables. Here are some examples to help you create more clear and easy to understand pages.
Paragraphs can be written like so. A paragraph is the basic block of Markdown. A paragraph is what text will turn into when there is no reason it should become anything else.
Paragraphs must be separated by a blank line. Basic formatting of italics and bold is supported. These can be nested like so.
*italics* **bold** ~~strikethrough~~ *italics **with nested bold** is possible*
Here is a quote.
Quotes are automatically indented when they are used.

A horizontal rule is a line that goes across the middle of the page.
1. Item 1 2. A second item 3. Number 3 4. Ⅳ
* An item * Another item * Yet another item * And there's more...
Code needs to be surrounded by 3 tick marks before the first line and after the last line of code. You may also follow the ticks with a language before the code to indicate the language to highlight.
print "Hello world!";
``` print "Hello world!"; ```
You can also make
inline code with single ticks surrounding the code.
There are six levels of headings. They correspond with the six levels of HTML headings. You've probably noticed them already in the page. Each level down uses one more hash character.
# Heading 1 ## Heading 2 ### Heading 3 #### Heading 4 ##### Heading 5 ###### Heading 6 ### Headings *can* also contain **formatting** ### They can even contain `inline code`
Of course, demonstrating what headings look like messes up the structure of the page.
I don't recommend using more than three or four levels of headings here, because, when you're smallest heading isn't too small, and you're largest heading isn't too big, and you want each size up to look noticeably larger and more important, there there are only so many sizes that you can use.
URLs can be made in a handful of ways:
* A named link to [MarkItDown]. The easiest way to do these is to select what you want to make a link and hit `Ctrl+L`. * Another named link to [MarkItDown](http://www.markitdown.net/) * Sometimes you just want a URL like <http://www.markitdown.net/>.
Tables will automatically fill the width of the screen and are created with a combination of pipes (|) and dashes (-)
