Escaping Formatting

Sometimes you may want to use some of the special characters in the mark down spec, but not have the text formatted.

Placing a backslash \ before each character will tell the spec to ignore formatting and just display the special character.

Example:

\# Heading 1

will not be formatted but displayed as:

# Heading 1
