I am confused between the following two interpretations:

<< Input:
_foo_: bar baz_quux

>> HTML output:
<p><em>foo_: bar baz</em>quux</p>

The first _ is combined with the third _, not what I intended obviously.
But I put a space in front of the colon (or leave the colon out), it
suddenly is fine?

<< Input:
_foo_ : bar baz_quux

>> HTML output:
<p><em>foo</em> : bar baz_quux</p>

Any ideas/work-arounds?
Kind regards,

That is really weird.  I have no idea.
