I am using Org-mode 7.9 and found that with a small change in org.el, it is then possible to create HTML output corresponding to "*U* nited *N* ations" - but without the spaces after the bold initial letters. This kind of feature is useful for defining acronyms, also to emphasize syllables or unusual spellings: "ye old /e/ church" (without the space before the emphasized "e") and a possible solution to "[O] how to create bold initial characters (for explaining an acronym)" posted by me on Sep 3.

It is possible to use the same trick that Łukasz Stelmach mentioned in the context of "=" markers in 2010:

In Emacs, the org source on screen then does look like "*U*nited", too, when that unicode character has been inserted after the second "*".

I modified org.el, line 3731 like this:

(defcustom org-emphasis-regexp-components
 '(" ​\t('\"{" "- ​\t.,:!?;'\")}\\" " \t\r\n,\"'" "." 1)


(defcustom org-emphasis-regexp-components
 '(" #​\t('\"{" "- #​\t.,:!?;'\")}\\" " \t\r\n,\"'" "." 1)
where "#" is the unicode character <U200B>.
