According to the Twine documentation, if a word has asterisks around it, it's rendered in italics:
Italics = *Italics*
If I want to literaly show the asterisks, then I need to put some extra characters around it:
*Boom!* == ``*Boom!*``
What is ` ?
Is it '? Because I don't get the desired results when writing ' '*Boom!*' ' or "*Boom!*".
In fact, ''text'' seems to be equivalent to **text** even though it doesn't say that on the doc pages the program links me to.
