How to format text in Skype

Today I found out some features of the Skype chat that must have sneaked in the last versions, since nobody has posted about it yet. I was having a hard time when pasting text into the chat which contained character that were easily misinterpreted as emoticons, e. g. (0) as well as using basic text formatting like bold, italic or strikethrough.

A * serounding text (*a*) bolds.
A _ serounding text (_a_) italics.
A ~ serounding text (~a~) strikethroughs.

If you start a message with "@@ " (two ats with a space), every formatting function in your message will be ignored except emoticons.

If you start a message with "!! " (two exclamations with a space), every formatting function in your message will be ignored and font will be switched to monospaced.

So here is my findings:
StyleExample
boldThis is *bold* text
italicAnd this _italic_
strikethroughAnd ~strikethrough~
no text formatting fullAnd full message @@ *no text formatting* but emoticons :D
plain text fullAnd full message !! no text formatting, no emoticons, monospaced
plain text inlineAnd inline {code}no text formatting, no emoticons, monospaced{code}
