Oh yes, parse that into underline! Well, after one of Jaaps latest
mails, it seems we will have both in the long run anyway.

I'm used to typing markup. For everything too "serious" to use Zim for
(because I need to publish it later), I use LaTeX and I type the markup
there as well. I prefer "stateless" editing: I don't care in what mode
(bold, italic, whatever) the editor is. 

I don't see how the original reason for the inventation of
wiki-markup limits its usefullness today. And I vaguely remember you
critisising the "my way or the highway" approach a few days ago. Why
apply it here?
