It might be an obvious question for those who know, but I can't find an answer to it.

Recently, I started working with sphinx which uses reStructuredText. It somehow looked familiar to Ask Ubuntu's system. What exactly is Ask Ubuntu's formatting system?


EDIT: The following page on SO seems to suggest that it is Markdown and not reStructuredText: https://meta.stackoverflow.com/editing-help This page is similar to https://askubuntu.com/editing-help Are AU and SO using Markdown?

  • I think my question actually included this answer. Anyway, you're right and I am happy to be confirmed. Delft boven.
