8.4 Bold, italicized, and underlined text

To emphasize text, surround it with certain specially recognized characters.

     **strong emphasis**
     ***very strong emphasis***
     =verbatim and monospace=

While editing a Muse document in Muse mode, these forms of emphasis will be highlighted in a WYSIWYG manner. Each of these forms may span multiple lines.

Verbatim text will be colored as gray by default. To change this, customize muse-verbatim-face.

You can also use the <code> tag to indicate verbatim and monospace text. This is handy for regions that have an “=” in them.
