Headings

# Heading 1 ## Heading 2 ### Heading 3 #### Heading 4

Text Formatting

Emphasis, aka italics, with *asterisks* or _underscores_. Strong emphasis, aka bold, with **asterisks** or __underscores__. Combined emphasis with **asterisks and _underscores_**. Strikethrough uses two tildes. ~~Scratch this.~~

Timestamps

Timestamps There are VS Code plugins for adding timestamps, e.g.: 2020-03-13T10:24:30.403Z.

Quotes

## Quotes > Blockquotes are very handy in email to emulate reply text. > This line is part of the same quote. Quote break. This is a very long line that will still be quoted properly when it wraps. Oh boy let's keep writing to make sure this is long enough to actually wrap for everyone. Oh, you can *put* **Markdown** into a blockquote.

Links

# Links [I'm an inline-style link](https://www.google.com) [I'm an inline-style link with title](https://www.google.com "Google's Homepage") [I'm a relative reference to a repository file](../blob/master/LICENSE)

Images

# Images You can use [this VS Code plugin](https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=Liu-Yongle.paste-image-to-markdown) to paste images into Markdown. It saves them to the same location as the markdown file. ![Here's an example image](2020-03-13-09-49-17.png)

Syntax Highlighted Code

# Code ```javascript var s = "JavaScript syntax highlighting"; alert(s); ``` ```python s = "Python syntax highlighting" print s ``` ``` No language indicated, so no syntax highlighting. But let's throw in a <b>tag</b>. ```

Tables

# Tables | Tables | Are | Cool | | ------------- |:-------------:| -----:| | col 3 is | right-aligned | $1600 | | col 2 is | centered | $12 | | zebra stripes | are neat | $1 |
