Not all languages have fonts that include italics as a text style. 

Italics are generally unavailable except for the scripts that use Latin,
Greek and Cyrillic alphabets.

So what should front-end applications use for presentational rendering in

i.e. In USFM as marked using \add_...\add*

Has there been any previous discussion on this topic?
