--- Comment #7 from Telesto <telesto at surfxs.nl> ---
Asterisks can be used in textual media to represent *emphasis* when bold or
italic text is not available (e.g., Twitter, text messaging).

Bounding asterisks as "a kind of self-describing stage direction", as linguist
Ben Zimmer has put it. For example, in "Another gas station robbery *sigh*,"
the writer uses *sigh* to express disappointment (but does not necessarily
literally sigh).[26]

Also some models use * quite a lot. Try typing:
De heer *, wonende te *, *, geboren te * op *, houder van een *, nummer *,
uitgegeven te * op *, gehuwd*,
