With CMS Fiona, content can be formatted using Markdown, a simple notation for links and standard markup for lists, font styles, indented text and more. For Markdown content the field type Markdown is available, which behaves like the HTML field type but is, additionally, able to interpret Markdown markups. In the preview and on the live server (i.e. with exports), Markdown markup is only taken into account if the Rails Connector for CMS Fiona is used.
Markdown-formatted content can be created and edited using the Markdown editor that is supplied with CMS Fiona.
Enter your text using the Markdown syntax into the panel on the left-hand side. The effect of your changes is immediately visible in the panel to the right. An overview of the Markdown syntax can be found on the web, for example at http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax.
