Topic Markup Language (TML)

What is TML: TML is a simple text markup language implemented in Foswiki (this Wiki), to achieve effects like boldface, italics, etc. It is much simpler than HTML and easy to use. In particular, when an user is entering responses into prompt or comment boxes, TML is what one has to use to make text more readable. This page is an abbreviated list for very quick reference. The full TML description can be found in this link here.

What else besides TML: Foswiki allows users to enter text using its built-in WYSIWYG editor. Users can also enter plaint text and use standard HTML markups to achieve higher readability, however HTML is higher skill than TML.
Basic Markup to enhance text:

If this is what you want This is the markup for example
Bold face text surround text with asterisks
*Bold face text*
italics surrount text with underscores
boldface with italics surround text with double underscores
