Making a list

    [*] Item 1
    [*] Item 2
    [*] Item 3

produces the following output:

  • Item 1
  • Item 2
  • Item 3

Including code

When including any type of source code or other text that could benefit from a monospaced font, you can use the "code" tag.

    [code]This is some code.[/code]

produces a code box like this:

This is some code.
