On this answer I used this markdown: *x*2, *x*6, *x*A, *x*E expecting the x to be italicised, but this only happened for the last two items:

*x*2 *x*6 xA xE

This appears to be triggered only by one or more following digit:

*foo*bar *foo*42

foobar *foo*42

Looks like the same thing happens globally!

  • A workaround would be to use <i>: <i>foo</i>42. I edited your answer accordingly. Mar 8, 2017 at 11:32
