I think it's a matter of debate whether

  .RB [ U ] INT \fIN\fP _WIDTH


  .RB [ U ] INT\c

is more readable.  In the latter at least it's obvious
in which typeface each part will be set.

How can you tell?

If you're using devps:

  in the Adobe fonts Times-Roman, Times-Italic, and Times-Bold
  the underscore is identical, so you don't see which underscore
  is being used (but it's the bold underscore).

If you're using devtty:

  If GROFF_NO_SGR is unset:
    the output is correct, the underscore is in bold.

  If GROFF_NO_SGR is set (and you're piping into less):
    Both bold underscore and underlined underscore are output as
    <underscore><backspace><underscore>.  less has a preference
    for interpreting this as an "italic" underscore rather than
    as a bold underscore.  There's nothing you can do short of
    modifying less.
