To link to a certain man page use syntax like sshd(8) or nc(1)

 1. After every colon at the end of the line there will be an automagic return:
   example# have your commands detected and formatted in pre
   of course you could also use the non-root variant:
   example$ echo "{{{ preserve command syntax till end of line }}}"
 1. Use a somehow more simple *bold* tag
  Note: Will alert your readers to be careful by a drawing the attention using a grey box
 1. Linking to file:README or dir:/usr/local/etc will automatically syntax it.

Important: Will draw a big fat warning altering your users of total disaster
