Basic formatting


Headers separate page text into parts.

A header line starts with one or more * symbols (asterisks) followed by space.

A first-level header has one asterisk; it begins new text block. Second- and third-level headers start sections and subsections.


*** I am a third-level header
...Some interesting text here...


I am a third-level header

...Some interesting text here...
