Textile Fragment

A Textile Fragment is a block of text that is formatted using the Textile Markup Language.

Textile is an easy to learn markup language originally developed by Dean Allen and billed as a “humane Web text generator”. It is preferred by some because it allows casual users to write valid Html with ease and without a WYSIWYG editor.

As an example, here is some very simple Textile Markup:

h4. This is a list:

* item one
* item two
** item 2a
** item 2b
* item three

h4. And a Table:
| Colours | Animals | Edibles |
| Red | Bird | Cabbage |
| Blue | Lion | Sandwich |
| Yellow | Kangaroo | Muesli |

Which converts to the following as Html:

This is a list:

  • item one
  • item two
    • item 2a
    • item 2b
  • item three

And a Table:

Colours Animals Edibles
Red Bird Cabbage
Blue Lion Sandwich
Yellow Kangaroo Muesli
