Writing and Previewing Markdown

Markdown is a text-to-HTML conversion tool for web writers. It allows you to write using an easy-to-read, easy-to-write plain text format, then convert it to structurally valid HTML. We use the Node.js module marked as our markdown parser and compiler. To preview the input dynamically, you are strongly recommended to use an online editor such as StackEdit, Markx, or Dillinger to compose your reviews and comments before posting them on our website. The following are some tips and tricks:

  • To insert an image, you should upload it to our server in your "Documents" page first. The SVG format is prefered.
  • Please do not use your knowledge of JavaScript to create cross-site scripting attacks, otherwise your account will be locked once detected.
