You can create bullet-point lists in your text by beginning lines with an asterisk
*, followed by whitespace,
followed by the list item text. The asterisk will be replaced with an indented bullet-point. Consecutive lines
of bullet-point items will be joined into a single list, with appropriate vertical spacing.
Remember that there must be whitespace between the asterisk and the list item text! Otherwise, this markup will conflict with the emphasis markup.
If you use multiple asterisks (
*** etc.) for the bullet, you will make a nested list, which is indented deeper than
a normal list. Use nested lists for “children” of normal list items.
* Bulleted item * Bulleted item 2 ** Indented bulleted item
