Bolding words that include an underscore doesn’t work
How can I italicize text that contain underscores?

In one of my Stack Overflow questions, ParentReference or Google_ParentReference, I typed the following.

It is seems that there are some prefix "Google_" added and ParentReference is renamed to Google_ParentReference.

I expected Google_ParentReference would be in italic, but it didn't come in italic. The star is still with it. Why?

Because there is an underscore character ( _ ) between two words. So Instead of * use <I> tag for it like this:

It is seems that there are some prefix "Google_" added and
ParentReference is renamed to Google_ParentReference.

You can also escape the underscore: *Google\_ParentReference* => Google_ParentReference – Kevin Dec 13 '12 at 20:57
