When I write, for example, _expected_/_unexpected_, the second word is not rendered in italic, and the underscores are visible; the same is true for *expected*/*unexpected*.

  • expected/_unexpected_

  • expected/*unexpected*

Is there a way to make appear both the words in italic, without to write space before/after the slash?
Does the markup works as expected, or is it a bug?

Workaround method 1: Use / instead of /.

expected/unexpected

Workaround method 2: Use <em>…</em> instead of _..._

expected/unexpected

@Yi: Why? They work both, don't they? –  Hendrik Vogt Aug 23 '11 at 16:19
