Text import - loan words

I have noted that when I import a text file which uses Markdown formatting for italic characters (_txt_) things work fine except in two circumstances -

1) The italics should extend over more than one word e.g. _Hard Times_ (this may only happen when the phrase extends over more than one line)

2) A single word contains an accented character e.g _littérateur_

I can understand the problem in correctly identifying (1) as a missing closing _ can mean whole pages in Italics, however is there some setting I can use in Calibre to catch case (2).

This is an unfortunate side effect of a book which, although in English, is loaded with foreign words.

Set the input encoding correctly to whatever the encoding of the txt file is.

I've now made a little more sense of this - the character encoding was correct and if under text encoding I use Paragraph Style "Auto" and Formatting Style "Auto" then the document structure (Chapters etc) are correctly presented when I convert to EPUB and some Italics (not those with accented characters) are correctly rendered.

If I change to Markdown for the Formatting Style then the chapters aren't detected but the italics are properly interpreted for accented characters.

A bit of initial editing of the text file sorted this out so chapters are correctly identified in Markdown form. I now have Chapters, a TOC and correct italics.

Thanks BobC

With Markdown sources I find that Paragraph style "off" and Formatting style "markdown" works best for conversion.
