IRC formatting code support, and keyboard shortcuts for same
|Assigned to:||Mirco Bauer||% Done:||
At present the smuxi frontend only supports entering two formatting codes (bold and underline), and only by bracketing the text in asterisks or underscores - which remain present in the transmitted text! This is convenient, but ugly.
Keyboard shortcuts that insert the IRC formatting codes (and nothing else) directly would be nice. This gist1 lists the commonly recognized formatting codes, their meanings, and their default keybindings in xchat.
