Thanks for Including emphasis!

I just wanted to thank Sampson for including the ability for posters to add emphasis in the form of bold and italics.

This is just one, easy thing that the braintrust at Chowhound just never got. I can’t tell you how many thousands of times over my tenure there I had to switch my phone’s keyboard from letters to symbols (and back and forth) to try to emphasize something without coming across as SHOUTING.

Keep up the great work!


Agree, agree, AGREE! I usually resorted to ::: brackets around words in all caps if I wanted to emphasize something.

To say nothing of the fact that cookbook titles should be in italics and putting them within quotation marks made this former editor nucking futs.
