The forum uses something called ‘Markdown’ as the text editing formatting language. It’s pretty simple, although you can just use the editor toolbar to do this as well (which just does the text bits for you).
Note: there are some special things behind the icon as well.

We also allow copy/pasting from HTML, so you can use that.
Because a lot of forums also use BBcode format, we support some of the following as well as Markdown, to make it easy to copy/paste:
