In the static HTML JIRA mirror on projects.bentasker.co.uk, I'm using showdown (http://softwaremaniacs.org/playground/showdown-highlight/) to fill some of the gaps, might be worth building it into core.

Have re-enabled support for Italics in JIRA's markup, but to try and avoid the issues seen previously, the following provisos must be true

- The italicised section must be preceded by either a start of line, or a space
- The underscore must not be escaped (i.e. backslash underscore)
- The closing underscore must immediately be followed by a space, or end of line.
Now that italics seem to be working properly, need to look at sorting escaped characters out too.
A useful part of markup to add support for would be user mentions (e.g.
), calling the user-translation function when replacing the string.
btasker changed status from 'Open' to 'In Progress'
