Style Guidelines for Articles

This document demonstrates how to stylize articles using markdown. Most of the markdown described in this document is standard markdown, and can be read about further here:

Headings

To create a heading, add number signs (#) in front of a word or phrase. The number of number signs you use should correspond to the heading level.

Header 1

How to write it in markdown:
# Header 1

The format:
# {some text}

Header 2

How to write it in markdown:
## Header 2

The format:
## {some text}
Header 3
How to write it in markdown:
### Header 3

The format:
### {some text}
Header 4
How to write it in markdown:
#### Header 4

The format:
#### {some text}
Header 5
How to write it in markdown:
##### Header 5

The format:
##### {some text}

Headers will automatically show up in the navigation bar to the right of the article. Sometimes you may want to include header-styled content in the article without it being in the navigation pane. To do this, add an exclamation before the text, like this:

### !I am a header 3, but I will not show up in the navigation pane

To align headings, use the same syntax as for text alignment. The default alignment is left.

Header 5
Header 5
How to write it in markdown:
##### ..center..Header 5

The format:
##### ..[text_align(center/right (default - left))]..{some text}

For titles hidden from the navigation "!" put before the alignment

How to write it in markdown:
##### !..center..Header 5

The format:
##### !..[text_align(center/right (default - left))]..{some text}
