Please allow itallicness for part of a word. This will allow highlighting which part of a word is important, or which part constitutes a language symbol, button name, etc.

    He probably meant "completed" in the sense that there is indeed a way to have italics mid-word: the way Shog9 said Aug 29 '10 at 21:07

    @Michael @Job I'd say this should've been marked status-bydesign or maybe a new status such as status-workedaround

Update: intra-word emphasis is now supported in both posts and comments.

For normal posts, just use HTML: H<i>T</i>ML

For comments, it would be nice... But the parsing done on comments is already weak compared to normal posts.

  • Comments should allow more markup, but that's another problem that I would bet already has a feature-request. Aug 29 '10 at 19:38

    Wait, you can use HTML tags in posts?!? Well, now I feel like an idiot. Aug 29 '10 at 19:54
  • @James: You can use a limited subset that is similar to what you can do with Markup. There are a few things that don't have don't have Markup equivalences. The ones that come to mind are strikeouts, superscripts, and subscripts. Aug 29 '10 at 20:49
  • @dmckee: Yes, now I feel extra dumb, because I've used <s> and <sup> in quite a few posts. I'm just going to be quiet now and pretend this moment of stupidity never happened. Aug 30 '10 at 0:08
  • Aren't you emphasizing the wrong letter?
