Capitals are usually read as shouting, so I'd recommend to either leave it out, or use the more common /italic text/, *bold text* or _underlined text_ when you really need to put emphasis on a word for disambiguation. (I.e. surround the word or wordgroup by / /, * * or _ _; some email clients will even display text in the intended style.)

AFAIK it mean As Far As I Know ;)

BTW Interesting question about the thread safety of ansistrings; it also applies to other ref-counted stuff like dyn. arrays. If it is not thread-safe, I recommend to make appropriate calls to UniqueString.
