See the variable gnus-emphasis-alist, you can both see the defaults and
customize it to add new patterns to highlight.  Here's a sample of the
defaults (the actual Lisp form is more complicated, but this should show
it):

         '(("\\*" "\\*" bold nil 2)
           ("_" "_" underline)
           ("/" "/" italic)
           ("_/" "/_" underline-italic)
           ("_\\*" "\\*_" underline-bold)
           ("\\*/" "/\\*" bold-italic)
           ("_\\*/" "/\\*_" underline-bold-italic))

It's also important to note that only other Gnus users will see these
highlights.  Everyone else will just see the ASCII characters unless
their MUA supports the patterns too.
