Typography Example

Content, and content marketing, is critical today. Sometimes, though, the systems to create content get in the way, overwhelming users and offering too many options.

Headings

Headings from h1 through h6 are constructed with a # for each level:

h1 Heading

h2 Heading

h3 Heading

h4 Heading

h5 Heading
h6 Heading
# h1 Heading
## h2 Heading
### h3 Heading
#### h4 Heading
##### h5 Heading
###### h6 Heading

Horizontal Rules

The HTML <hr> element is for creating a “thematic break” between paragraph-level elements. In markdown, you can create a <hr> with any of the following:

  • ___: three consecutive underscores
  • ---: three consecutive dashes
  • ***: three consecutive asterisks

Emphasis

Bold

For emphasizing a snippet of text with a heavier font-weight.

rendered as bold text

**rendered as bold text**

Italics

For emphasizing a snippet of text with italics.

rendered as italicized text

_rendered as italicized text_

Strike through

Strike through this text.

~~Strike through this text.~~

Blockquotes

For quoting blocks of content from another source within your document.

Quote text

`Quote text`

Lists

Unordered

A list of items in which the order of the items does not explicitly matter.

You may use any of the following symbols to denote bullets for each list item:

Unordered

  • Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet
  • Consectetur adipiscing elit
  • Integer molestie lorem at massa
  • Facilisis in pretium nisl aliquet
  • Nulla volutpat aliquam velit
    • Phasellus iaculis neque
    • Purus sodales ultricies
    • Vestibulum laoreet porttitor sem
    • Ac tristique libero volutpat at
  • Faucibus porta lacus fringilla vel
  • Aenean sit amet erat nunc
  • Eget porttitor lorem
* Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet
* Consectetur adipiscing elit
* Integer molestie lorem at massa
* Facilisis in pretium nisl aliquet
* Nulla volutpat aliquam velit
  - Phasellus iaculis neque

Code

Inline code

Look at this ```Inline code here...``` :)

Indented code

Or indent several lines of code by at least four spaces, as in:

    // Some comments
    line 1 of code
    line 2 of code
    line 3 of code

Block code “fences”

Use “fences” ``` to block in multiple lines of code.

```
Sample text here...
```

Syntax highlighting

Add the file extension of the language you want to use directly after the first code “fence” and syntax highlighting will automatically be applied in the rendered HTML. For example, to apply syntax highlighting to JavaScript code:

grunt.initConfig({
  assemble: {
    options: {
      assets: 'docs/assets',
      data: 'src/data/*.{json,yml}',
      helpers: 'src/custom-helpers.js',
      partials: ['src/partials/**/*.{hbs,md}']
    },
    pages: {
      options: {
        layout: 'default.hbs'
      },
      files: {
        './': ['src/templates/pages/index.hbs']
      }
    }
  }
};

HTML blocks

HTML blocks (e.g. div, table, pre, p) must be separated from surrounding content by blank lines and the start and end of the block should not be indented with tabs or spaces

**Bold** text

<div>
  **Bold** text
</div>

**Bold** text

Tables

Tables are created by adding pipes as dividers between each cell, and by adding a line of dashes (also separated by bars) beneath the header. Note that the pipes do not need to be vertically aligned.

  | Option | Description |
  | ------ | ----------- |
  | data   | path to data files to supply the data that will be passed into templates. |
  | engine | engine to be used for processing templates. Handlebars is the default. |
  | ext    | extension to be used for dest files. |

Aligned text

Adding a colon on the right side of the dashes below any heading will right align text for that column.

| Option | Type    | Description |
| :------| :-----: | -----------:|
| data   | text    | path to data files to supply the data that will be passed into templates. |
| engine | text    | engine to be used for processing templates. Handlebars is the default. |
| ext    |  text   | extension to be used for dest files. |

Images

Images have a similar syntax to links but include a preceding exclamation point.
