However, Thunderbird, which I use, tries to do this *but fails* when the 
begin/end markers occur on separate lines.

Thus _this is important_ will be underlined in Thunderbird, _but this is 
also important_ will not (at least if the line break falls within the 
markers, as it did when I tested this by sending it to myself).

I suppose one could work around this _by putting extra markers_
_at the end of the first line and the beginning of the second_.
