Shouldn't Markdown for email be using **bla** for bold (since that  
translates to <strong> AFAIK)?

And I'd argue that *bla* is visually bold, whereas _bla_ is visually  

I must confess to not being a fan of the fact that *bla* and _bla_  
are synonymous in Markdown, because visually they are not synonymous  
(*bla* carries more visual weight than _bla_).

But that's just me.
