Formatting Using Textile


You need to do two line returns to get new paragraphs in Textile.

Like this.


Start the line with: h#. The # is a number from 1-5. Put a space after the dot.


Put _underscores_ around words.


Put *asterisks* around words.


Start the line with “bq.” (with the dot, but without quotes).

It makes the next paragraph look like this.


Tables are pretty easy. Just start using the Pipe symbol (“|”) to denote the beginning and end of each table cell. Single line return starts the next table row. Headers can be automatically formatted by starting the cell contents with “_.” (with the dot, but without the quotes).

Table Header 1 Table Header 2
Table Cell 1 Table Cell 2

See the Textile guide for a more in-depth look at tables, for stuff like row spans, col spans, and aligning text left/right/center.

No Textile

Start a line with “notextile.” (with the dot, but without quotes) to prevent Textile from parsing the symbols on that line. You may want to include some html line breaks after it to help make the next paragraph break look nice.

HTML works great in most cases. Especially useful is the DIV tag for making sidebars or floating images, etc. left and right:

<div style="float:right"> Sidebar goes here, yo. </div>
