It's actually oblique, but that's a nitpick as most people won't notice the 
difference. ^_~ But yes, as I recall, I did not use anything else for italics 
in that sheet for exactly that reason. And as an interesting side note, when 
I was in the discovery phase as to what tags were added like that I coloured 
them blue to see what happened.

That's the way BT does it. I'm basically the stylesheet guy ;-) There's lots 
of fun stuff you can do if you have a handle on CSS
