How to add underline character in subtitle text without triggering underline formatting?

Especially in programming lectures, there is a heavy usage of underline character, e.g. for names of variables - "user_input". Since subtitles enable plain text based formatting for bold (**text**), italic (*text*) and underline (_text_) - a great feature! - there is a problem if translator needs only an underline character without triggering formatting. For "*" character, this can be achieved by using a space (text * text) or triple star if both formatting and character are wanted (**text *** text**; *text *** text*). Is there a similar approach for "_" character?

Underline Character Effect 

So, the main question of this topic is - how to display "_" character without triggering formatting on surrounding text? See also the image above for an example of the problem.

In order to use the underscore symbol with this issue, use the ASCII symbol (_) instead of the underscore.

For instance, you would use new_user_login instead of a new_user_login.

Hope it helps!
