TYPEMILL

Markdown Reference and Test Page

Markdown is a simple and universal syntax for text formatting. More and more writers switch to markdown, because they can format their text during the writing process without using any format-buttons. Once they are familiar with the markdown syntax, they can write formatted text much easier and faster than with any standard HTML-editor.

Developers love markdown, because it is much cleaner and saver than HTML. And they can easily convert markdown to a lot of other document formats like HTML and others.

If you develop a theme for TYPEMILL, please take care that all elements on this page are designed properly.

Table of Contents

To create a table of contents, simply write [TOC] in a separate line. It will be replaced with a table of contents like this automatically.

Headlines

Headlines are simply done with hash chars like this:

# First Level Headline
## Second Level Headline
### Third Level Headline
#### Fourth Level Headline
##### Fifth Level Headline
###### Sixth Level Headline

Third Level Headline

A third headline is more decent and lower prioritized than a second level headline.

Fourth Level Headline

A fourth level headline is more decent and lower prioritized than a third level headline.

Fifth Level Headline

A fifth level headline is more decent and lower prioritized than a fourth level headline.

Sixth Level Headline

A sixth level headline is more decent and lower prioritized than a fifths level headline.

Code

Let us create some `<?php inlineCode(); ?>` and now let us check

Let us create some <?php inlineCode(); ?> and now let us check, if a codeblock works:

​```
<?php
    $welcome = 'Hello World!';
    echo $welcome;
?>
​```

Math

Please activate the math-plugin to use mathematical expressions with LaTeX syntax. You can choose between MathJax or the newer KaTeX library. MathJax is included from a CDN, KaTeX is included in the plugin. So if you don't want to fetch code from a CDN, use KaTeX instead. The markdown syntax in TYPEMILL is the same for both libraries.

Use inline LaTeX ``x = \int_{0^1}^1(-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac})/(2a)`` like this.

Use inline LaTeX \(x = \int_{0^1}^1(-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac})/(2a)\) like this.

Or specify latex sytnax for a code-block like this:

​```latex
x = \int_{0^1}^1(-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac})/(2a)
​```

Or specify latex sytnax for a code-block like this:

$$ x = \int_{0^1}^1(-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac})/(2a) $$

Please make sure that all tests run successfully.
