How can I underline text in my questions in Stack Overflow??

This is important for me to format object text like in

my:House

in OOP.

This workaround looks a bit stupid at times but maybe it is worth considering. I could not combine a semicolon with an underline, so, these are the results.

m̲y̲:H̲o̲u̲s̲e̲
 :̲

m̲y̲:̲H̲o̲u̲s̲e̲

m̲y̲:H̲o̲u̲s̲e̲

u̲n̲d̲e̲r̲l̲i̲n̲e̲d̲ t̲e̲x̲t̲

Is there a way to move this post with all content and answers to Meta Stack Overflow? I have just not been here for a long time, could not remember where to ask. I skimmed the chat rooms, since just a side question but..no place to ask. –  panny Oct 28 '12 at 18:10

Markdown doesn't have a defined syntax to underline text so to answer your question, you can't.

Not completely true, you can always use ascii underline - however it looks a bit odd when used on characters that have a part under the line (y,g,q,...) There are existing tools that will do this for you e.g. manytools.org/facebook-twitter/strikethrough-text example: n̲i̲c̲e̲ t̲e̲x̲t̲,̲ u̲g̲l̲y̲O̲n̲e̲ y̲,̲g̲,̲q̲,̲.̲.̲.̲ –  jave.web Oct 11 at 11:27
