Read this useful article.


It begins,

There is currently no Chinese equivalent of italics used for emphasis.
Simply slanting the characters is not only inadequate (and bad-looking), as
in Western languages, but ignorant of the history of Chinese writing, where
body text was in columns and only display script was arranged horizontally,
which would preclude the slanting of vertical strokes. It looks bad.
