Can't say I blame you.  I know I couldn't do it with a regexp.

TODO Org-mode tutorial with screenshots

*After you get the 5 tutorials*, here's my suggestion:
Have emphasis work for the simplest case (no stacking, no enclosed
markers, no white space, etc.).  For anything more complicated,
require LaTeX style markup (e.g., \textbf{this is all bold}), but
hide the markup when the closing brace is entered (like hiding
square brackets in links).  Would that be more reasonable?
