Duolingo is the most popular way to learn languages in the world. Best of all, it's 100% free!

What markup/tags does DL's forums use?

I see people inserting images and bolding text etc etc, but there are no editor controls when making a post, so I was wondering if there is a list of tags that this forum interprets, or is it just basic html tags?

Like half the internet, Duolingo seems to use a variant of Markdown -- http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax gives an introduction but Markdown is not properly standardized so some things will work differently here.

Yeah, I'll remember; it's not like I suddenly have an urge to use

<h1>giant titles</h1>

in every post I make.

You can insert images by typing:

![alt text](image url)

The "alt text" can be anything; preferably the image name.

It shows up as:
