Since underlining is difficult on these message boards and ALL CAPS GETS A LITTLE RUDE after a while, I think people just use them to *emphasize* certain words(!) Or did you see it used in another way?

No - I have not seen the asterick used in another way. This is the answer to my question, and I thank you.
