Differences from standard Markdown

Paragraphs and line breaks

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