My understanding from some earlier discussions is that italics and bold are retained. I'm not sure about underlining, and I've never kept it, but recently I saw it in something I validated so I did keep it in. As Jamie said, though, recently people have pointed out that tabs and extra spaces are not kept, so I've been adjusting the margins when I want to place something in further from the margin, e.g., newspaper items or letters or poems. I don't know whether that's kept or not. I got the impression from the Kipling poetry book that it isn't, but I've beenkeeping on doing it anyway. smile G.
