I just noticed that words italicized aren't showing up on my screen! Test:

Normal: This is a test.

Italicized: This is a test.

Bold: This is a test..

Looking at the above, the italicized sentence "This is a test." doesn't show at all on my screen!?!

Shows fine for me.

For ref I'm on a Thinkpad T61p running Win7 and using Firefox 3.6.16

All three show exactly as you intended on mine, running Win7 and IE 9.

Thanks! Looks like it's just my computer / browser because what I see is this:

Normal: This is a test.

Italicized:

Bold: This is a test.


Weird because this hasn't happened before. I'll close and reopen the browser and see if the italicized sentence will show.

Ben, that's what happens when you italicize things too much. :)

Closing and reopening the browser changed nothing. But now, after having rebooted the computer, I can see italicized fonts again! Weird. Oh well, at least it's back to normal now...

I was going to say, how did you know there was italicized text if you couldn't see it?

Are you just screwing with us?

Actually, Jerry, I was just screwing with you.

You are right, I really shouldn't know there was italicized text if I couldn't see them to begin with -- even though I was the one who typed and posted them.

Ohhhhhh

I didn't notice that you were the one that posted it

That explains it

Also, it said "Italicized text:" just before

Can I now have the two minutes of my life back that I used to read this thread?

Hopefully since I typed that in italics Ben won't be able to see it.
