Ray; None of us can use those types of emphasis either. Or rather we can
use them, but they won't come through Rootsweb. So mostly we just use *'s
around a word or phrase for emphasis. I know it is frustrating. Maybe
someday they will give us these abilities. But these messages need to be as
plain and universally accepted by all types of e-mail clients as possible.
Hope this helps.
