Here is an example.

;; _underline_ and *emphasize*
(setq howm-user-font-lock-keywords
      '(("\\(^\\|\\s-\\)\\(_\\w+?_\\)\\(\\s-\\|$\\)"
         2 'underline prepend)
        ("\\(^\\|\\s-\\)\\([*]\\w+?[*]\\)\\(\\s-\\|$\\)"
         2 'font-lock-comment-face prepend)))

Ideally, I believe that howm itself should not offer any
formatting/markup rules, so that you can combine howm with your
favorite writing style.  It's the first motivation why I'm not
satisfied with emacs-wiki and I began to make my own tool.

Since howm-mode is a minor-mode, it can be used with any other modes
theoretically.  Indeed, I personally use rd-mode, rd-mode-plus, and
outline-minor-mode for markup and outline support, together with howm.

Other combinations are not tested sufficiently.  If you have any
trouble with outline+howm or org+howm, please let me know.
