How in sphinx does one create a paragraph that uses a fixed width for all characters and allows one to switch between normal, italic, and bold fonts.

This quesiton is similar to the following question on stackoverflow .

You should try the parsed-literal directive:

https://docutils.sourceforge.io/docs/ref/rst/directives.html#parsed-literal

But be warned about this issue:

Thanks, the following input

.. parsed-literal::

    *variable_one* = constant_one( *variable_two* )
    *variable_three* = constant_two( *variable_four* )

generates the output I was looking for
