This post is aimed to capture the list of commands I use frequently while writing a post for this site in Markdown. You can write a post both in Markdown format and in HTML format. Markdown is preferred when you want to have a free-flow writing style. HTML is used when you want to have more to do with the publishing of the post.
I normally write in Markdown format because I have to write a lot of content. There is not much to do with image placement or ordering of the content. However, many a times I have to resort to HTML form of writing as well. For instance, the image that I have embedded in the 'About' tab is written in HTML format because I want to have an image floating to the right of the text. And it is easy to do this using HTML's image tag. Let us get started.
Inserting an image of appropriate size
<img src="url" alt="some_text" style="width:width;height:height;">
- Use the HTML element to define an image
- Use the HTML src attribute to define the URL of the image
- Use the HTML alt attribute to define an alternate text for an image, if it cannot be displayed properly
- Use the HTML width and height attributes to define the size of the image
- Use the CSS width and height properties to define the size of the image (alternatively)
- Use the CSS float property to let the image float
