You know, I really like plain, fixed width text.
I think it's awesome.
It's clear. It works. And it's difficult to totally stuff it up.
However, emphasis is useful.
I've decided that I like using asterixes for *bold* text, and that my 'single quote fetish' is just what I do for 'italics'.
I'm a big fan of *strong* vs. *bold* and 'emphasis' vs. 'italics' too.
*What* not 'how'.
I've played with _underlining_ and the /other, other italics/ but I don't like them.
Man... I've got to get out more..
