Differences from standard Markdown

Paragraphs and line breaks

Generally, with Markdown, one or more consecutive sentences without indents become a paragraph, and one or more blank lines will separate the paragraphs. With Standard Markdown, line breaks within a paragraph are ignored, but they will be shown in Backlog.

HTML tags

With standard Markdown, HTML tags are supported, but they will be ignored on Backlog for security reasons.
