How can you send message in bold, Italic or underlined text ?

Its just simple. You need to add specific symbol in front and end of the text to style the text
To ge the bold font. Add * symbol in the beginning and end of the word/sentence
eg. *I am bold*

To achieve the Italic style add _ in the beginning and the end of the word/sentence
eg. _I am Italic_

Sameway, to get the underlined style. Add ~ at the beginning and end of the word/sentence
eg. ~I am Italic~

You can also play with different combination of the styles to get combined styles. Say if you want the text to be bold and italic. You can combine the symbol  * and _ and get the style. While combining the styles
eg. *_I am bold and Italic_* this will give a bold and italic style text.  make sure you place the code in such a way the the word/sentence is closed correctly between the symbols.
