But there are ways to indicate italics, such as /this/
or *this*.  Titles are treated 'Like This', unless you
use the single quotes for speech, in which case
they're "Like This".  

My point: ASCII has grammar too, and just because it
is not the same as hard copy grammar does not mean
that it is not valid, nor that it is untranslatable.

In other words, learn the rules and quit your
bitching.

I believe in dragons, unicorns, good men
and other mythical creatures.
