Markdown – Using Markdown and Meta Data

Using Markdown and Meta Data

Metadata is used to accentuate text in a query. Most of the formatting options listed below can be combined (e.g. bold and italic).

In cases where the formatted text could be interpreted as XML (coding text), the CDATA tag (Character Data) can be added to tell Rainbird to ignore any characters which could be interpreted as XML.
