    1. Nested
    2. Nested too
    3. Yet one more
    4. And another one
    5. This is not another one
  • Also the other way round:
  1. Item 1
  2. Item 2
  3. 3 metI
  • And like this.
    • Nested item.
      • Even more nested item.
        • Even more nested item. Although it becomes hard to edit.
          • I've flown the coop!

Indented Paragraphs

If you indent your paragraph, it will be monospaced and won't line-wrap. This is a very common mistake, but trying to rectify it by inserting new lines into the paragraph doesn't work.


Our revels now are ended. These our actors,
As I foretold you, were all spirits and
Are melted into air, into thin air:
And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,

The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Ye all which it inherit, shall dissolve
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sheep.
