_GitLab uses the [Redcarpet Ruby library][redcarpet] for Markdown processing._
GitLab uses "GitLab Flavored Markdown" (GFM). It extends the standard Markdown in a few significant ways to add some useful functionality. It was inspired by [GitHub Flavored Markdown](https://help.github.com/articles/basic-writing-and-formatting-syntax/).
You can use GFM in
You can use GFM in the following areas:
- comments
- issues
- merge requests
- milestones
- snippets (the snippet must be named with a `.md` extension)
- wiki pages
- markdown documents inside the repository
You can also use other rich text files in GitLab. You might have to install a dependency to do so. Please see the [github-markup gem readme](https://github.com/gitlabhq/markup#markups) for more information.

GFM honors the markdown specification in how [paragraphs and line breaks are handled](https://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax#p).
A paragraph is simply one or more consecutive lines of text, separated by one or more blank lines.
Line-breaks, or softreturns, are rendered if you end a line with two or more spaces

## Multiple underscores in words
It is not reasonable to italicize just _part_ of a word, especially when you're dealing with code and names that often appear with multiple underscores. Therefore, GFM ignores multiple underscores in words.
