Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/23.3 (gnu/linux)
Every once in a while, I like to
_underline_ parts of an email or post.
(If you don't see the word "underline" underlined,
the rest of this won't make sense.)
For me, when I put a single underscore before and after a word,
that word displays as underlined when I view the sent email or post.
What I don't understand is that *bold* is supposed to be achieved by
using asterisks instead of underlines. When I use asterisks that
way, sure enough, the word in question is displayed as bold. But I
see the asterisks too.
When I do the same with underlines, I don't see extra underlines before
and after the word.
Is the problem on my end or is this inconsistency done on purpose?
_underlined_ - okay
_bold_ - extra asterisks
/italic/ - done with slashes (doesn't work)
- Email/News markup,
