I wrote my message in a hurry. Let me clarify it. I'm only talking about built-in tooling. I don't mind if a user have the feature you're proposing, of course, as it is not wrong per se. However, I believe that's not the best solution for the problem we're trying to solve. I think there's an opportunity to provide something smarter, and less intrusive, to handle emphasis, which doesn't involve messing with `post-command-hook'. > Could you walk me through, in your proposed DWIM system, how a user should > be able to remove or change emphasis markers after they are rendered and > hidden? Like in a word processor, you don't need to see the markers to operate on them. I don't think the usual "toggle" model is appropriate, however. I suggest to use two commands: one for deleting the markers around point or within active region, and one for inserting markers or extending existing ones. Allow me to polish up my draft a bit, so we can compare the benefits of each system. Regards, -- Nicolas Goaziou
