How do I use Recipes that use the Storage Format with the Confluence Source Editor?

Our recipes are shared using Confluence Storage Format, the XHTML-based format that Confluence uses to store the content of pages, page templates, blueprints, blog posts and comments.

(warning) For more information on the Confluence Storage Format, view the documentation by Atlassian.
