Do you need to convert markdown to HTML? If so, you come to the right place. In this post, MiniTool PDF Editor shows you how to do that in 4 ways. You can choose one according to your condition.

What Is Markdown?

Markdown is a lightweight markup language for creating formatted text using a plain-text editor. It has concise formatting syntax, allowing people to focus more on the content itself rather than on formatting.

It is saved in plain text format but includes inline text symbols that define how the text should be formatted (e.g. bold, indented, headings, table formatting). Don’t worry. The syntax of Markdown is very simple. There are no more than ten commonly used mark symbols.

The markdown language is easy to read and write, can be mixed with HTML, and can export HTML, PDF, and its own .md format files. MD files can actually be opened with commonly used text editors, such as Notepad, EditPlus, sublime, etc.

Because of the above characteristics, markdown is widely used for blogging and instant messaging and is also used elsewhere in online forums, collaborative software, documentation pages, and readme files.
