As well as explicit markup such as the examples above, Textile automatically wraps blocks of text with
<p>...</p> tags, and turns line breaks into
<br /> tags.
If this is inconvenient, you can turn Textile off individually for a single article with the Use Textile setting under Advanced Options, just to the left of the main article text on the content > write page. There are separate settings for the body and excerpt.
To turn off Textile by default, look for the Use Textile setting under admin > preferences.
Both options require that you resave your article before they have any effect.
If you just want to disable Textile for part of an article, you can use several methods:
1. A space at the beginning of a line will turn off
<p>...</p> tags for that line
2. To disable Textile for a few words, use ==...==
3. To disable Textile for a larger block, use
