As underlining or bolding are very specific operations depending strongly on the OS, why not use good old simple textual measures to get the readers attention, e.g.

Please supply only *one* argument. Please supply only _one_ argument. Please supply only one(!) argument.
This works everywhere where you can print text :)

[Discipulus]: new $workstation is arrived: SSD 250, sata 1TB, 16G RAM, only i5 CPU.. seems a good one: guess what first user installation will be?
[Corion]: Discipulus: Notepad++, or Perl ;)
[marto]: xubuntu or lubuntu
[Corion]: :-D
[marto]: my desktop is a core2 duo, 120GB SSD, 4GB RAM, boots to (GUI) login in less than 10 seconds from cold start
[Discipulus]: mah, winbuntu 10...
[marto]: whent he boys start school I'll build myself as new machine, ryzen based
[Corion]: marto: That's cool! I think my (home) desktop spends 30 seconds in the BIOS...
[Corion]: marto: Heh - currently they seem promising, but I think I'll stay with nVidia+Intel for the time being, as I've been bitten too often by bad AMD drivers
Discipulus is (still?) not a big fan of notepad++
