I noticed a strange thing that seemed like a bug to me. In this answer that I posted to one of the questions: Are there some typical mistakes made by native Georgian speakers when speaking Russian? I used double-asterisks to make ending of the word bold, e.g. большая кошка. In post preview these look just fine, however when I submit it, on the actual post this looks as italicised ending surrounded by single asterisks. So is this some sort of a bug or did I miss something?
We don't support intra-word emphasis. This is by design.
