# Italics not working in WYSISYG

In this thread, I gave an answer and attempted to use italics at the end of it but failed; rather, my text shows up with the markup asterisks about it but no formatting. (See for yourself.)

Am I doing something wrong?

• It looks like the "_" (underscore) is what is causing it to fail. I added a little work around, but it isn't a "real" fix. – Kellenjb Jun 2 '12 at 2:59
• Good to know. Thanks. +1. – JellicleCat Jun 3 '12 at 2:42
