put the text in brackets and the link in parentheses like so:

[text] (link)

note: don't put a space between. (i put one in there so it wouldn't format it as a link)

bold text = 2 asterisks before AND after what you wanted bolded
italic text = 1 asterisk before AND after what you wanted italicized

And

bold, italicized text = 3 asterisks before AND after what you want to be both. <---awkward wording :-(

Wouldn't this be a nice addition to the long-requested FAQ tab?

Not a dumb question. In fact, a question that I've had recently. So, thanks for asking.

Here's where I asked this question recently

The second response (from thunderthighs) explains it all.

Also, If you want to actually make the asterisk VISIBLE use a backslash:
\ *example*

Annnnd (funfact): You can FORMAT text that's LINKED!

Italics
Woot!
Bold
Woot!
Combo
Woot!

Do it just the same way you would standard text, except put the asterisk's inside of the brackets.

I was wondering, is there a format for coupon code boxes?

One like from this deal? http://deals.woot.com/deals/details/bf98c63b-c999-419f-9117-2c7b932c9fec/25-off-orders-over-15-at-limogs-jewelry I know this is a sponsored link, but I could've sworn I saw one on the regular deals.woot post from someone but I can't remember which one.

Funny thing is also, I just figured out that * is italics and * is bold/italics... I've been using just ** the whole time until yesterday, lol.
