Smart_Strong

Summary

The Smart_Strong extension adds smarter handling of double underscores within words. This does for double underscores what smart_emphasis does for single underscores.

The Smart_Strong extension is included in the standard Markdown library.

Example

>>> import markdown
>>> markdown.markdown('Text with double__underscore__words.', \
                      extensions=['markdown.extensions.smart_strong'])
u'<p>Text with double__underscore__words.</p>'
>>> markdown.markdown('__Strong__ still works.', \
                      extensions=['markdown.extensions.smart_strong'])
u'<p><strong>Strong</strong> still works.</p>'
>>> markdown.markdown('__this__works__too__.', \
                      extensions=['markdown.extensions.smart_strong'])
u'<p><strong>this__works__too</strong>.</p>'
