Exactly how am I supposed to use my text editor to make words bold? Is
every text editor supposed to understand a "python format" for code?
Besides, I don't like bold for keywords (or anything in code) - I like
my keywords blue (RGB 0, 0, 255). Of course, with a "python format", I
could make *my* keywords blue. But I can pretty much guarantee that my
preferred editor will not ever understand "python format".
