This page has samples of various supported Markdown text formatting options. Markdown is supported in Customer Notes, Internal Notes, Line Item Descriptions, Document Intro, Document Terms, Document Contract and Email Templates.
It's a fairly straightforward way to get really nicely formatted documents and emails.

There are two ways to create links.
Format #1: Creating a hyperlink allows you to create custom text which when clicked will go to the URL. If this is being used in an email template, be sure to set the Format to Markdown.

Format #2: Full URL's by themselves will be recognized by most modern devices and turned into hyperlinks automatically.

You can also use raw HTML in your Markdown, and it'll mostly work pretty well.

My basic recommendation for learning how line breaks work is to experiment and discover -- hit <Enter> once (i.e., insert one newline), then hit it twice (i.e., insert two newlines), see what happens. You'll soon learn to get what you want. "Markdown Toggle" is your friend.
Here are some things to try out:
Here's a line for us to start with. This line is separated from the one above by two newlines, so it will be a *separate paragraph*. This line is also a separate paragraph, but... This line is only separated by a single newline, so it's a separate line in the *same paragraph*.

They can't be added directly but you can add an image with a link to the video like this:
<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=YOUTUBE_VIDEO_ID_HERE " target="_blank"><img src="https://img.youtube.com/vi/YOUTUBE_VIDEO_ID_HERE/0.jpg" alt="IMAGE ALT TEXT HERE" width="240" height="180" border="10" /></a>
Or, in pure Markdown, but losing the image sizing and border:
