Hello,

Is there a way to italicise a block of text rather that just single 
words? (org-mode 8.0.3).

Thanks,
Roger

Does this work?

/This is a block of text./
/This is a block of text./
/This is a block of text./

Hello Roger,

when answering a mail/post from the list, please Cc the list in your
response, so other members of the list can see your mail to.

Maybe the markup gets escaped somehow by special characters in the text.
I do not know enough about the markup of org to help you here.  I think
Nicolas can give you a more satisfying answer.

Thanks again for your help.  It is easy to fix using a regex to insert / 
at line beginnings and ends, so not a big deal for me.

Sorry about the botched reply-to-list: twitchy trigger-finger.

Dunno if this makes sense, but now that we have @@html: ... @@ etc., I
wonder if it is worth considering @@italic: ... @@, or @@emphasis /:
... @@, or @@emphasis italic: ... @@.

Or $[emphasis :beg "/"] ... $[emphasis :end] as previously discussed.

No.  Please no!  We'll end up with XML before long :-(

Semantically, the use of @@ is for actions that are export target
specific whereas italic etc. are text markup and inherently export
target neutral (generally).  Very different beasts...

One major attraction of org, for me, is the minimal clutter introduced
by the language so that it doesn't get in the way of the writing.

I don't think we need another syntax for emphasis. Moreover, the three
lines limitation can be removed at some point, i.e., once we have
a powerful enough fontification system.
