Code

Inline code has back-ticks around it.

var s = "JavaScript syntax highlighting";

s = "Python syntax highlighting"
print s

s <- "R"
print(s)

No language indicated, so no syntax highlighting.

Tables

Tables Are Cool
col 3 is right-aligned $1600 col 2 is centered$12
zebra stripes are neat \$1

There must be at least 3 dashes separating each header cell. The outer pipes (|) are optional, and you don’t need to make the raw Markdown line up prettily. You can also use inline Markdown.
