Mauro Carvalho Chehab Feb. 6, 2020, 3:11 p.m. UTC
This file is almost compatible with ReST. Just minor changes
were needed:

- Adjust document and titles markups;
- Adjust numbered list markups;
- Add a comments markup for the Contents section;
- Add markups for literal blocks.

Here, the indentation was lost too. Is this intentional?

That was a mistake.

Both ways would work. I'll keep the original indentation for the next
version. Thanks for pointing it.
