I ask this specifically because SQL Server collations contain underlines, and I couldn't find how to display them properly as part of a sentence. Only quoting them as code seems to display it properly, as below :

Latin1_General_CI_AS

Marked completed because the bug the caused this was fixed long ago. –  Joel Coehoorn Sep 13 '12 at 16:41

Intra_word_emphasis are disabled, so the underscores in that first part should show up normally. There's a long-standing bug that the preview doesn't handle this correctly, but it should show up normally in the post.

If you still have an _ that is causing you trouble, you can escape/hide it from the markdown parser with a backslash (\).

Well Hell...that damn preview is screwing me all up. –  TheTXI Oct 16 '09 at 13:36
    
Tested, and it does indeed work when posted :) –  CodeByMoonlight Oct 16 '09 at 14:09

The only way to get it to show up in the same sentence as regular text would be using the backticks for code highlighting it seems.

If you are just looking to make it work at all, you can use the backticks, the <pre></pre> tags, etc.

Edit: Turns out I am wrong and the underscores WILL work but the preview is still bugged.
