When I am trying to add for example WS_EX_APPWINDOW as a text in a Trello card description it'll be converted to WSEXAPPWINDOW.

Am I assuming correct, that surrounding underscores are used for italic style?

How can I achieve to display WS_EX_APPWINDOW without conversion?

Trello accept Markdown syntax in card descriptions. When you surround a word with underscores it will be printed in italic

However you can use underscores escaping them, e.g.


will be printed as


If you wan to know more on markdown syntax please refer to the official documentation

  • Ah nice. Haven't paid much attention to markdown so far. But since it is also used on Stack Exchange I'll take a closer look. – Erik Virtel Nov 29 '12 at 13:58

Thanks to markdown, I ended up using backtick quotes (`) to indicate the mentioned WS_EX_APPWINDOW example as code within the text. Within the code span the underscore conversion is not performed.
