I tried using the italic for a phrase reported in a comment and, inside that phrase, the bold for a single word. All I get was the asterisks used for bolding the word not being parsed as bold markers.

Is there any way to write in italics a phrase, and highlighting in bold the beginning of that phrase? HTML is not allowed in comments, and HTML entities are not parsed in comments.

For example, the first comment I wrote for this question uses the following Markdown.

This is an example of comment using italics and bolding: _**Ei** fu siccome immobile dato il mortal sospiro, stette la spoglia immemore orba di tanto spiro_.

It shows fine in posts, but it is not rendered as expected in comments.

Just use an asterisk for italic. ***Ei** fu siccome immobile dato il mortal sospiro, stette la spoglia immemore orba di tanto spiro*
