Here is a big new feature: Markdown syntax for comments. No longer is plain text your only option. Now you can italicize, embolden, etc.
Markdown is simple. When you type it out, it looks just like you would type out a plain-text email. Some examples follow.
To break a comment into multiple paragraphs, put a blank line between them. To italicize a section of text, put a star on either side (*hello* will show up as hello. To make some text bold, put two stars on either side (**hello** will show up as hello). To do both, use three stars.
To make a list of items, put each item on a line staring with a dash. If you want the items numbered instead, put a number and a period at the start of the line instead of the dash.
To quote someone, put a > at the start, just like in email.
To make a link, put the text you want displayed in square brackets, followed by the address in parentheses. Typing [hello](http://google.com/) will put a link to Google on the page, with the text "hello" at the link.
There is a list of other ways to mark up your text at the basic Markdown reference. The only thing we don't support here is inserting your own html tags.
