An h1 header

Paragraphs are separated by a blank line.

2nd paragraph. Italic, bold, 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.

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:

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:

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. Here’s a link to a local doc. Here’s a footnote 1.

Tables can look like this:

Left align Right align Center align
This This This
column column column
will will will
be be be
left right center
aligned aligned aligned

Or an table with a caption:

size material color
9 leather brown
10 hemp canvas natural
11 glass transparent

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

(The above is the caption for the table.) Here’s a definition list:

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

Again, text is indented 4 spaces. (Alternately, put blank lines in
between each of the above definition list lines to spread things
out more.)

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:

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

Done.
