#1258 Emphasize item names in descriptions

It is not always obvious what name an item is called because the look text may have descriptive attributes.

A first attempt was made to highlight the item name with #, but I think that it is too confusing because players are trained to type words in blue.

It would be nice to print item names in italics, but not blue.

    We'll need another escape character for that. Preferably something that does not get often used in normal chat (including emoticons so ^ and ~ are probably out). @ could be a possibility but breaks some shorthand, emails and some emoticons. Reserving § would bother only lawyers (but is it easily available on all keyboards?)

    The client has now a second highlighting style. The item descriptions just need to start using it

    Thanks for the suggestion, this request has now been implemented in CVS.
