# This is the top headline ## This is a second level headline ### This is a third level headline
Headlines are there to organise long pages and help readers to find the paragraph they are looking for more easily. Use headlines, but of course not too many.
*This text will be italic* _This will also be italic_ **This text will be bold** __This will also be bold__ _You **can** combine them_
It is very helpful to sometimes highlight certain words so that they catch the eye of the reader. However, this should not be used too often, because if everything is highlighted, nothing is highlighted.
Links are a valuable resource on a wiki. They refer to other pages that already explain something so that no repetition is required. There are two kinds of links on this wiki:
These links refer to another page. They look like this:
(page) [Another Page](other-page)
 hold the name of the link the user clicks on. If it is empty, the headline of the page will be fetched which should be the default for most links used on this wiki.
Alternatively another description can be used.
Please always use relative paths to refer to other wiki pages.
Links to external pages look like this:
This is some `inline code`.
Longer blocks of code can be put into triple-backticks (```).
Images basically work like links. They always cover the whole size of the window.
To add a link to an image, enclose the Markdown for the image in brackets, and then add the link in parentheses.

Footnotes allow you to add references. Click the link to jump to the content of the footnote at the bottom of the page.
Here's a simple footnote. [^1] [^1]: This is the first footnote and this appears at the bottom of the webpage.
Colons can be used to align columns.
