I'm with these syntaxes for the stuff discussed recently:

> I love deadlines. I love the whoosing noise they make as they go by.
- Douglas Adams

(with cite attribute)
> Pie pie pie pie pie pie!
- Weebl []

(class/id/style)       (v-- two or more spaces)
## Second header                    [.class #id] { font-family: "Lucida
