Bold text in table cells


When I put a word in bold face, the cell is automatically converted to a different color. Which code can I use to stop this in a specific table, without deactivating it entirely?

Problem situation

When writing this:
| fdhg | dfhg | *dfgh* |
| *fdhg* | dfhg | dfgh |
| *hjngfd* | dfghj | edr |

You get this:
fdhg dfhg dfgh
fdhg dfhg dfgh
hjngfd dfghj edr

This is the result I would like to get:

(To display it here, I have written a big chunk of HTML, which is of course not a solution for the problem.)

dfghgfd vfgda
qwtrew vgjkhf
wertrew ertztre
dfghgfdhfg hgfdsfgh

Unfortunately this is a design limitation of the Table rendering code, in that bold is displayed by generating table head entries <th>

I got it to work by using HTML to do the bold text:

asdf sdfg eryt
fdhg dfhg dfgh

Not sure if it will it will not survive wysiwyg though, so the table still needs to be in a sticky block

Thanks for your answer. I also tried and found this solution, which was not so satisfying, but better than nothing at all. At least it works. By the way, I have deactivated wysiwyg on my wiki since I have it set up, because it did break up many other things when switching between editor modes. Maybe this is solved in the new version?

PS: Where did the "copy your name to sign" field go??

There is a +v drop-down box toward the right of the button bar. More objects to insert. Signature is included.
