# How to use markup in LaTeX? [closed]

How to use LaTeX markup in text? I have one text which has bullet points so i am using following way.

A paragraph is a series of sentences that are organized and coherent, and are all related to a single topic. Almost every piece of writing you do that is longer than a few sentences should be organized into paragraphs. This is because paragraphs show a reader where the subdivisions of an essay begin and end, and thus help the reader see the organization of the essay and grasp its main points.

\newline
\begin{itemize}
\item- Paragraph is a way to represent you feeling.
\end{itemize}


In my code, I am using

\def\verbatim@font{\normalfont\ua1}


but when I read from file, there appears to be one more slash (\).

\\newline
\\begin{itemize}
\\item- Paragraph is a way to represent you feeling.
\\end{itemize}


Also it gives error message

! Undefined control sequence.
l.1887 ...rting dose.\\newline\n\\begin{itemize}\n


How to avoid such errors?

This is a duplicate of the following questions: Write LaTeX with LaTeX and Side-by-side source and output when documenting a style file. – Alan Munn Jun 22 '12 at 2:09
I don't want to write latex code. just want to write text in bullet points. Output should be - Paragraph is a way to represent you feeling. – manish Jun 22 '12 at 2:22
So then I'm quite confused. What exactly are you doing? What do you mean by "when I read from file there appears to be one more slash" (what file are you reading from, and in what context?) – Alan Munn Jun 22 '12 at 3:02
I am working on latex and R. I need to add bullet points in existing text so what i did just added text using markup but does not seem to be working fine. How can we do it? – manish Jun 22 '12 at 3:05
So are you using Sweave? If so, then post a small .Rnw file that shows the problem and maybe we can help you. If not you need to explain clearly what you are doing, because from the current state of your question it's impossible to tell. – Alan Munn Jun 22 '12 at 3:22
