formatting the "description" field

Hope this is not too late to ask. Worst case the submission will not look as nice as I'd like it to...
I've seen in the Submission Gallery that the description field can use formatting - titles, bulleted lists etc.
What syntax should I use to achieve that?

    I'm racing to the last minute too!

    I am pretty sure someone said it accepts Markdown syntax.

    Markdown it is.

    Thanks Andy and Roopesh! Highly appreciate your replies.

    I figured it up already by trial and error (not that many different format syntaxes, after all ;-) so my submission is done. I hope the fact I hit "submit" a gazillion times to get there won't make anyone angry :-)

    Cheers,
    Asaf.

    Hi Asaf -- I am the who gets all the submission requests ... keep 'em coming! ;) Glad to help and good luck everyone!

    Side note: I'll let the ops team know that we need to build out a "preview submission" option.

    Hi Chris, Thanks a lot! Mostly done except for some last minute text edits...
    If you're compiling a list for the ops team, can you also ask for a "search" feature for this forum? This would have enabled me to find an answer to my question on my own...
    Cheers,
    Asaf.

    @Asaf W - smart idea. In the meantime, the poor mar's method I have been using is to google "site:http://devcup.evernote.com/forum_topics + search term" and you'll get the forum search.

    I really should have thought of that myself :-p Thanks for the note. I'll keep it in mind for next time...
