#2657 Fandoc - Markdown Styles

ruchc03 Fri 13 Oct 2017

I would like to request the following Markdown styles to be included in Fandoc:

  1. Underline Emphasis (Underline Italics): __*underline italics*__
  2. Underline Strong (Underline Bold): __**underline bold**__
  3. Strong Emphasis (Bold Italics): ***bold italics***
  4. Underline Strong Emphasis (Underline Bold Italics): __***underline bold italics***__
  5. Underline: __underline__
  6. Strikethrough: ~~Strikethrough~~

Thank you!

Hi ruchc03!

I like the idea of having more formatting options in fandoc - underline and strikethrough. Although I'm a bit concerned that underscores for underline deviates from the Markdown spec which uses underline for italic and bold.

Have you seen this syntax used elsewhere?

Upon further research, you are right. I based my request on what was outlined here: Markdown Text 101 (Chat Formatting: Bold, Italic, Underline) , but it is obviously for the Chat Formatting Markdown of a product called Discord.

Upon testing the combined emphasis and strikethrough noted here: Markdown Cheatsheet - Emphasis, it appears the two are not currently supported in Fandoc.
