# Code snippets

You can add a code snippet to the text of a paragraph or make it a separate block.

## In the text

To add a code snippet to the text, use the  symbol.

Code snippet in the text.


Result

Code snippet in the text.

Tip

We recommend using no more than 100 characters, because the text in these fragments doesn't wrap. For a larger number of characters, make the code a separate block.

## Separate block

To make a code snippet a separate block, separate it from the rest of the text on both sides with the characters .

To highlight the syntax, specify the language in which the code is written in the initial line. For example:

sql
`

The list of available languages can be found on Github. For information on how to transfer an additional set of languages, see Connecting an additional language.
