    bold symbol

    I try bold symbols in latex.

    {\bf This \; is \; in \; bold}


    {\bf This \; is \; in \; bold}
    " alt="
    {\bf This \; is \; in \; bold}
    " />


    {\it this \; is \; in \; italics}


    " alt="
    {\it this \; is \; in \; italics}
    " />

    There appear additional symbols.
    Please help writing bold and italics in latex.

    In bold, use:

    \mathbf{}

    which is math bold font
    And italics:

    \mathif{}
    which is math italics font

    Example:
    \text{Normal}

    \mathbf{Bold}

    \mathif{Italics}

    For underlined; \underline{}

    \text{\underline{Underlined}}

    Notice that without the \text command, the underlined will be displayed as italics as well.

    We try all three formats?

    \mathif{\mathbf{\underline{All}}}

    Hm... italics don't take irrespective of the order the commands are put.
