@icantstandit, I put an asterisk * in front of and behind what I wanted to italicize. I'm not sure that's the right way to do it, but it worked. You know: an asterisk right up to the left of the word, with no space between the word and the asterisk, and then an asterisk right up to the right of the word, again with no space. Does it only work for me? That'd be weird. . .
