Hello, everyone.

I know some newbie will be facing the same issue right now, so I decided to write about some markdown styles and how to go about it.

I hope you find this information useful base on my own knowledge.

How To Make Headlines?

When writing an article, headers and sub-headlines are particularly important features to consider because they display the structure of your content and guide the reader's eye.

This can be done by inserting symbol # at the start of the text or sentence. As the number of # symbol increases the size of the text or sentences decreases.

Example;

Header 1
Header 2
Header 3
Header 4
Header 5
This code was used to make the above markdown:

Header 1

Header 2

Header 3

Header 4

Header 5

How to Justify Text

Input the text and end it with

Example;

Before justifying my texts 👇
