Textile Syntax Reference
Squarespace Mini-Reference


Textile works by allowing you to type in plain text, and have that text be converted to XHTML in a way you would expect. You can enter your own HTML tags if you wish, and these will not be affected by the Textile processing system.

For instance, instead of inserting <p> tags around your paragraphs, just hit the enter key twice. Textile will enclose the blocks of text that look like paragraphs in the proper tags.
