Add Markdown button under compose box & plain/WYSIWYG compose modes
Add a Markdown button below the compose box that when clicked, will show a list of markdown options, to explain how to format code. Also, to have these options clickable to add the given template to he compose box, allowing a user to manipulate the text. This allow first timers to develop an understanding for what it's saying quickly.
I've attached a Word document showing a preferable way to how this should be formatted, unlike the help page where the input and output have different text, making it confusing.
Also to have a plain text mode option for the compose box, rather than permanent WYSIWYG mode, which is very problematic with markdown, for example when you want to type something like
__init__, then you get trapped with italics & trapped in the code box, etc.
It's happened to me a few times within a very short period of use.
