However, underscore does do _underlines_.
I believe slashes do the /italics/.

Just surround the text with either underlines or slashes.
Asterisks are meant for bold, but GNUS doesn't do that,
it's too easy to bold things you don't want bolded.

Well, if I recall right, it does do *bold*,
but it leaves the asterisks visible.
