Description

At present the smuxi frontend only supports entering two formatting codes (bold and underline), and only by bracketing the text in asterisks or underscores - which remain present in the transmitted text! This is convenient, but ugly.

Keyboard shortcuts that insert the IRC formatting codes (and nothing else) directly would be nice. This gist1 lists the commonly recognized formatting codes, their meanings, and their default keybindings in xchat.

Stuff on the internet vanishes way too quickly, so here a backup of that paste/gist:
FORMAT     CHAR  HEX   BIND   NOTES
bold       ^B    0x02  c-B
underline  ^_    0x1F  c-U    because c-_ is hard to type
colour     ^C    0x03  c-K    c-C already bound to "copy" 
clear      ^O    0x0F  c-O    resets all formatting
inverse    ^V    0x16  c-R    aka "reverse", hence the bind; some clients render this as italic instead
