A follow-up to Text formatting enhancements on Facebook, how does one create bold and italic formatting in Facebook chat? Is it possible to provide emphasis within messages?

I think (maybe I'm going mad) that this used to work, but it hasn't been working lately.

Not sure if it still works but it used to be

*bold text here*

_underline text here_

I have no idea of an italic formatting option.

It doesn't work, today (August 2014). – klml Aug 25 '14 at 20:09
