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.
