Hmm, I'll have to try that; I don't use that editor, but the one I do use does regular expressions too (which is how I was able to semi-automate paragraph wrapping, albeit only to a point). The emphasis thing is only one of several tedious things about reformatting a long plaintext piece (it's an involved enough process that even with better automation, repackaging the whole giant back catalog's simply not going to happen), but it would certainly help. Thanks.
