Bold markup finally works with Japanese! See this announcement on Meta.StackExchange:

  Markdown change: Intra-word emphasis now works

Until now, we've been working around this problem by using <strong> and <b> because the normal markup for bolding, **, didn't work without spaces between words. But now it does:

文字を太字にする

So we can finally use ** here on Japanese.SE! Yippee!

  • Previous posts about problems with bolding: 120 - 532 - 1091 - all of these problems have been fixed! – snailcar Oct 19 '14 at 23:25
  • Woohoo! Glad it's working. – istrasci Oct 21 '14 at 18:16
  • That said, it's still hard to notice the bold in the middle of a lot of kana. Kind of wish we could just turn the text blue to highlight it or something. – Troyen Oct 22 '14 at 20:31

    @Troyen It's also possible to use emphasis dots: 文字を[強調]{﹅・﹅}する – snailcar Oct 23 '14 at 3:30

    @Troyen We can also use overlines and underlines: 文字を[強調]{HH}する・文字を[強調]{LL}する – snailcar Oct 23 '14 at 3:42
  • That is pure evil. Pure evil genius. – Darius Jahandarie Oct 23 '14 at 4:07
  • The underline thing looks best. How'd you do that? – Troyen Oct 23 '14 at 4:23
