This Memo was written (history) to serve as quick reference for ReST and Sphinx syntax.
Sphinx itself is very well documented, but is very large and cover many aspects, all of them not for daily use. And the Documentation of Rest, while being very rigorous is not of an easy access, at least at my own taste. I use to spend a lot of time to clarify even a tiny aspect, as the documentation is often scattered in many locations.
Moreover Sphinx seems first to be an extension of Rest, but it is not always true and there are some difference of aims, and incompatibilities, between Sphinx and Rest constructs.
This Memo give the constructs that I use the most often, and give cross-references to the manuals for details.
