Tip: Format descriptions with Markdown.

Screencast descriptions support some elements of Markdown, a lightweight markup language for formatting text. Use Markdown elements such as headings, bold or italicized text, and lists, to make long Screencast descriptions easier to read. For a quick reference to Markdown syntax, refer to the Markdown Cheat Sheet or other online markdown guides.
