Hey @Coded_Prof!

I think you are refering to the markup language called Markdown.,than%20using%20a%20WYSIWYG%20editor.

To answer your question, no you do not need to use markdown for this FCC project. Plain old html and css will be just fine.

For all of the projects, FCC will only expect you to use the technologies taught in the lessons. You are of course free to use any other technologies of your choosing (bootstrap, SASS, Less, etc) but use it at your own risk.

Hope that helps!

okay, I actually thought I MUST use markdown since its a technical documentation stuff.

I think you are looking for this. You need JavaScript to use marked library, it can be done via script tags in browser or in a separate file in your project folder (and use vs code to edit the code and manipulate the DOM accordingly).

This article could be of help.
