### Emphasis

*italics* or _italics_
**bold** or __bold__
**combined _emphasis_**
~~strikethrough~~

### Lists

1. First ordered list item
2. Second item
* Unordered sub-list.
Sub-paragraph within the list item.
1. Third item
8. First ordered sub-list item.
103. Fourth item

General guidelines:

• The list item number does not matter. As shown in the example below, the formatting defines the lists.

• List items can contain properly indented paragraphs, using white space.

• Unordered list can use: *, -, or +.

### Linebreaks

This is the first sentence.

This line is separated from the one above by two newlines, so it will be a *separate paragraph*.

This line is also a separate paragraph.
This line is only separated by a single newline, so it's a separate line in the *same paragraph*.

### Note

Trailing spaces can be used for line-breaks without creating a new paragraph. This behavior is contrary to the typical GFM line break behavior, where trailing spaces are not required.
