I just used the following syntax <del> ... </del> successfully on GitHub in an issue description.


You can give StackEdit a try. It has a nice integration with Google Drive. Once you import/export a Markdown document from/to Google Drive, you can open it later directly from Google Drive since StackEdit is integrated as a third party editor/viewer application. You can find StackEdit as a Chrome application as well on the Web Store. NOTE: I'm the ...


Currently, no. These tags will not be rendered correctly. But the short answer is that they maybe should be. The Markdown syntax documentation that you reference is the general spec for the Markdown standard, not controlled by Trello or anyone but John Gruber, originator of Markdown. Here's the full quotation: Markdown is not a replacement for HTML, or ...


I've created a Chrome, Firefox, and Thunderbird extension that allows you to write email in Markdown (in Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, or Thunderbird) and then convert to HTML before sending. If someone sends you raw Markdown it won't render it for you, but it lets you send rendered Markdown to others. Hope it helps.


You may be missing the full path/location to the image you want to include in your Markdown file. The example given is a relative path, where the image rests on the same server as the file. In the help, it would assume the image is actually located at: But that is not a valid file or location. In order to make sure you ...


In response to the answer above: As of January 30th, 2013, GitHub now allow relative links. Make sure that you append ?raw=true to the end of the URL, though. Here is an example: ![Image](../blob/master/public_html/img/nokia.png?raw=true) Due to the way GitHub handles URL's, if you do not append ?raw=true to the source URL your browser will attempt to ...


Use double tildes to ~~strike~~ text in markdown!


Make sure you've got Tumblr set to format your posts with Markdown here. Then, the syntax is: That's some text with a footnote.[^1] [^1]: And that's the footnote. As noted here.


There are two common ways to render tables inside markdown content: By embedding HTML using <table> <tr> <td> tags Using special table syntax, which is not an official part of the markdown spec, but is supported in certain libraries including Github Flavoured Markdown (GFM) Unfortunately the markdown library used by Trello doesn't ...


I've hunted around the interwebs for just this solution, and HIGHLY recommend using Markdown Here. It is a browser extension for Chrome, Firefox and Safari that lets one toggle back-and-forth between Markdown and HTML. It's original use-case is for in composing e-mail, but it "works great" in Google Sites. Also, it supports TeX math formula, which for ...


You use Markdown simply by inserting Markdown "code" directly into the card description as you type. When you save the description your Markdown code will automatically be converted to formatted text. If your issue is that you don't understand how to write in Markdown, there is a detailed explanation of how it all works on the Markdown syntax page. If you'...


You cannot disable Markdown in card descriptions in Trello. However, Markdown allows you to use backslash escapes to generate literal characters which would otherwise have special meaning in Markdown’s formatting syntax. For example, if you wanted to surround a word with literal underscores, you can use backslashes before the underscores, like this: \...


What you'll need here is to add a double-space, or two spaces, at the end of the line before you hit the Enter. So in this case, the keys entered would be: George SmithspacespaceEnter 27 Smith StreetspacespaceEnter Smithsville Markdown requires the addition of those two spaces at the end to mark a new linebreak.


I think a better method is to use the 'nowiki' tag. This is generic and does not rely on knowing character codes, plus your text is more readable. <nowiki>*</nowiki> will display as an asterisk at the start of the sentence. Now you can display any special characters you like!


No, there isn't a setting. Trello does not (currently) support markdown in comments.


Unfortunately, no. There does not appear to be any formatting options available, other than things like lists and note color.


The most basic form is just wrap your code with <code> tags. If you want somthing more fancy, you can use Just paste in your code beforehand and it will give you the HTML to paste on your Blogger page. It gives nice effects like alternating color lines and line numbers. For example your example, using the defaults ...


I don't use Tumblr myself, but on all other markdown-using sites that I'm familiar with (StackExchance included), the syntax 1. Bullet one. 1. Bullet one. one. 2. Bullet one. two. 2. Bullet two gives the result you're looking for as far as generating correct HTML is concerned: Bullet one. Bullet one. one. Bullet one. two. Bullet two The appearance ...


You can sort of fake it by using three backticks (```) to create a code block like this: ``` | Tables | Are | Cool | | ------------- |:-------------:| -----:| | col 3 is | right-aligned | $1600 | | col 2 is | centered | $12 | | zebra stripes | are neat | $1 | ``` which creates this: | Tables | Are ...

Take a look at Wrttn is a simple notepad with many useful features, the main one being that you can save as much text as you like while taking advantage of the formatting options markup languages such as Textile or Markdown give you.

You say you're a programmer, so this answer assumes you'd be comfortable with a little "roll your own" approach. Google drive supports scripts: So, you could create a little Showdown viewer that you point to your markdown files (as URLs).


You can convert a Markdown document to HTML, and copy/paste the HTML page (not the source) into a Google Drive document. It will retain most of the formatting including headings, lists, links, bold/italic/underline. The font, margins, and font sizes will not match the Google Drive defaults, and will look "out of place" compared to standard Google Drive ...


gdocs2md does a good job of converting Google documents to markdown, retaining headers, lists, tables, italics, bold, links and images. I use it to allow shared editing of documents, then export to markdown. Some care does need to be taken to use formatting in the Google document that maps well to markdown, but this isn't particularly difficult. I've also ...


You enter it as &lowast; or as &#42;, which will be displayed as ∗ and *, respectively, in HTML. Here is a test: Here is displayed as a bullet list. ∗ Here is displayer as an asterisk operator (Math Asterisk). * Here is displayed as an asterisk. And your example: ∗Hello world, this sentence is not in an unordered list. or &...


Non-standard protocols were disabled as a security precaution, to prevent the use of dangerous URIs (e.g. javascript:) from being rendered. See for a pull request with more details.


Instead of using the HTML entity, you can insert the character itself in Trello list titles, card titles and descriptions (and even comments, which do not support Markdown). Usually, when I need a special character, I do a web search to find the a website that uses the sought character, copy it (CTRL/CMD+C) and paste it where I need it (CTRL/CMD+V). That's ...


A Google Docs document encodes everything in 'elements' within the Kix editor that it's all based on (it's closed source as basically this is the big trade secret, with which anyone else could run their own Docs service - which is a shame imo). You can access these elements with Google Apps Script, a variant of Javascript - but writing Markdown from the ...
