What HTML does BitBucket support in their READMEs?

BitBucket's documentation says that they support a limited set of HTML tags for READMEs, but they never say what tags. I'm trying to embed an image using the <img> tag for control over image size, which Markdown doesn't support, but it shows up as the text for the HTML, ie. as <img src='mypicture.jpeg' width='100' height='100'> instead of the picture.

Hi Paul! You can find more information about the HTML tags that can be used at http://spec.commonmark.org/0.21/#html-tag. Regarding images, you can jump directly to the section 6.6. 

Hope this helps :)

Hi Ana,

 

Thank you for this information. It's unfortunate that BitBucket does not support <img> tags for sizing images. It's something I've grown accustomed to on GitHub and am dissapointed with the lack of formatting that BitBucket offers for documentation.
