Markdown is a lightweight markup language that allows users to format text with simple syntax. It’s how the heading above, “Markdown”, is created. It was developed by John Gruber and Aaron Swartz in 2004 and has since become a popular tool for creating content for the web. In the context of using ChatGPT, markdown can be used to format prompts and responses, making them more readable and visually appealing.
Here are the indicators for ChatGPT to format using markdown:
1. # Heading 1
2. ## Heading 2
3. ### Heading 3
4. *italic text*, **bold text**, __underlined text__
5. Lists: 1. 2. 3.

Ask the output to be organized by headings with Markdown - simply ask ChatGPT to format using markdown, and it does a pretty good job for you.
