Is there some quick overview what is in use (and what not)? 
The 'Markup Master Index Page' is a good start, but it is static.

For the time being, I switched from *bold* to _bold_. As far as I can see
this should not create too many problems.

One of the reasons why I don't like the single quote (and a few more characters)
is that on windows machines you can configure your keyboard to capture some character 
combinations and combine them into one character. (Such as 'e -> é). 
I always end up entering too many (or too few) quotes.
