Definition lists

what
Definition lists associate a term with a definition.
how
The term is a one-line phrase, and the definition is one or more paragraphs or body elements, indented relative to the term. Blank lines are not allowed between term and definition.

Footnotes

Footnotes provide extra information where using an info box is not appropriate [1]

[1]Like here, the text is relevant only to the line here, not the whole page say.

Source Code

This is a normal text paragraph. The next paragraph is a code sample

/* Type here */

Widget = {
    hide: function() {
        return this.element
            .animate({opacity: 0.0, top: -10});
    },
    show: function() {
        return this.element
            .animate({opacity: 1.0, top: 0});
    },
    element: $(".widget")
}

This is a normal text paragraph again followed by some CoffeeScript.

# Type here
Scope::find = (name, options) ->
    return true if @check(name, options)
    @add name, "var"
    false
