How do you use the 'style your text' help when answering a question?

I know, it’s probably a stupid question that is easily figured out, but it doesn’t seem to work for me.

Where it says “strong” or “emphasis”, that is where you place your text, if you get what I’m saying.

Typing certain symbols around portions of your text will change the way it appears in your answer (you can see how it will look in your “Live Preview” window). That line of text under the “Answer this question” window demonstrates what symbols to use and what effects they give. For instance, an asterisk typed on each side of a word or phrase makes it bold (you can’t see them, but I got that by putting an asterisk immediately before and after the word “bold”). The other examples shown work the same way.

Don’t use spaces next to the *_—, you could copy pate from under this window , and replace the word with your words .
