WriteFreely and MarkDown

Is it really distraction free?

Is it true that MarkDown works in WriteFreely exactly as explained in documentation? Let's try.


This is the biggest header (h1)

This is still a big header (h2)

This is a smaller header (h3)

This is the smallest header you can make (h6)


This is italic This is italic, too

This is bold This is bold, too

Here's some emphatic text.



  1. First, this
  2. Then that
  3. Lastly, this

  4. First this

  5. Then a second thing

  6. Finally a third thing

Syntax-highlighted Code Blocks

package main

import “fmt”

func main() {
    fmt.Println(“Hello, world”)


Generally it works. Strange beahaviour on numbered list, where line spacing appears weird. Syntax-highlighted Code Blocks doesn't work at all. There's a typo on the documentation; fixing the syntax, even Code Block works. ...and strikethrough works, event though it isn't documented.

So, it is really good, but it could be better perfect. :–)
