The mediawiki use of single quotes for emphasis, so that '''bold''', ''italic'' and '''''bold italic''''' all use the same symbol, is perfectly acceptable. The tikiwiki convention of __bold__ is better for alternate titles, since there are reasons to bold things sometimes that are not alternate titles. Therefore use of the __title__ convention could imply some reasonable default behaviour like to automatically create [[redirect page]]s to that page with the alternate titles, or notify the user that pages with those titles already existed.

The logic that "the underscore (_) was not chosen, because that could be confused for underlining" is absurd, since links normally appear underlined, and the title is exactly the text that does normally appear underlined in a link to that page.
The logic that "the underscore (_) was not chosen, because that could be confused for underlining" is absurd, since links normally appear underlined, and the title is exactly the text that does normally appear underlined in a link to that page. This proposal does not even dealing with [[underline]]. If it did, it would have to deal also with the fact that an {{{ ___alternate title__ }}} could and should be both bolded (to signal it as a title) and underlined or linked (usually also therefore underlined) to the redirect directive itself (so it can be changed or its talk page accessed).
