Hi Patrick,

You can check the Text Formatting Notation ( that contains all you can do in JIRA.

For more details, I'd also recommend you to check the Editing Rich Text Fields ( documentation.

Apart from that, you can use add-ons like the JEditor ( that will enable a more feature-rich text editor.

JIRA supports some wiki formatting, please search with "JIRA wiki markup".

If the feature you want is not listed there, I think you need some additional plugin.
