For the fun, here is a few examples of the same output in differents markup languages. The list isn’t exhaustive of course.

This is org-mode:

* This is a title level 1
    
+ first item
+ second item
+ third item with a [[http://dataswamp.org][link]]
    
** title level 2
    
Blah blah blah blah blah
blah blah blah *bold* here

#+BEGIN_SRC lisp
(let ((hello (init-string)))
   (format t "~A~%" (+ 1 hello))
   (print hello))
#+END_SRC

This is markdown :

# this is title level 1
    
+ first item
+ second item
+ third item with a [Link](http://dataswamp.org)
    
## Title level 2
    
Blah blah blah blah blah
blah blah blah **bold** here
    
    (let ((hello (init-string)))
       (format t "~A~%" (+ 1 hello))
       (print hello))
    
or
    
```
(let ((hello (init-string)))
   (format t "~A~%" (+ 1 hello))
   (print hello))
```

This is HTML :

<h1>This is title level 1</h1>
<ul>
  <li>first item></li>
  <li>second item</li>
  <li>third item with a <a href="http://dataswamp.org">link</a></li>
</ul>
    
<h2>Title level 2</h2>
    
<p>Blah blah blah blah blah
  blah blah blah <strong>bold</strong> here
    
<code><pre>(let ((hello (init-string)))
   (format t "~A~%" (+ 1 hello))
   (print hello))</pre></code>

This is LaTeX :

\begin{document}
    
\section{This is title level 1}
    
\begin{itemize}
\item First item
\item Second item
\item Third item
\end{itemize}
    
\subsection{Title level 2}
    
Blah blah blah blah blah
blah blah blah \textbf{bold} here
    
\begin{verbatim}
(let ((hello (init-string)))
    (format t "~A~%" (+ 1 hello))
    (print hello))
\end{verbatim}
    
\end{document}
