Ticket History

I believe this is the way Markdown works. Single _ or * is italics while double are bold.

Ah, my mistake.

I remembered ** before and after would result in bold, just assumed __ would be italics.

Maybe change the ticket to Enhancement to include somewhere with the tracker documentation on how each of the formatting / style features of Markdown can be used.

They are fairly unintuitive in some cases. Can either make another ticket for that, or change this one; or neither if you don't believe it is useful.

It would be helpful to have a formatting style guide of some sort.
