Subject: Possible bug? Combine emphasis marker faces?
Date: Tue, 28 Sep 2021 18:14:38 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <87tui4wx41.fsf@protesilaos.com> (raw)

Hello everyone,

I have noticed that it is not possible to combine org-emphasis-alist
characters.  When applying multiple types of emphasis, the face
corresponding to the outermost pair overrides its innermost counterparts.

For example, */emphasise/* will render with the 'bold' face, while
/*emphasise*/ will use the 'italic' face.

Looking at the code, this seems to be intentional or unavoidable, while
I do not know of a way to blend faces dynamically.

Is there a way to get composite styles?  Such as bold and italic or
verbatim and underline, etc.?

All the best,
Protesilaos (or simply "Prot")
