What is Markdown?
From PeepSo Docs
Markdown is widely used across the web. It’s the cornerstone of quick, simple and safe text formatting. Markdown is extremely powerful!
Markdown is a lightweight markup language with plain text formatting syntax. It is designed so that it can be converted to HTML and many other formats using a tool by the same name. Markdown is often used to format readme files, for writing messages in online discussion forums, and to create rich text using a plain text editor. – Wikipedia.
