Markdown italics with underscores look good in preview but not in answer
Preview should match the posted view
"In this answer, I added a cursive paragraph, which I've done more often. But now it doesn't work anymore. I tried preceding it with other text, played with
_, but to no avail. Has there been a new submission of Mardown? I haven't seen this behavior before.
The code looks good in preview (but I know preview is using JS)."
While experimenting further, I found out that using an underscore in cursive text will ignore the asterisk.
An example_here we go wrong
EDIT: see history of referenced question and see this possible duplicate (sorry, I can't mark it myself for duplicates).
EDIT: workaround: escape the underscore with a backslash. Ugly, but you can use it until this bug is fixed.
