Why are many answers appearing in italics all of a sudden?

Asked by marinelife (62266points) March 4th, 2010

I know that I did not employ italics on answers that are appearing that way, and since it is a series of answers in the threads, I am guessing others did not as well.

What question? I have seen it where a tag doesn’t properly get closed.

I only use italics if I am quoting another person or to emphasise a word, but somehow I don’t think you are referring to this kind of use…

I thought people were doing it on purpose.

@johnpowell Thank you for solving the mystery for me!

What’s weird is that even the stuff in the RH column is in italics!

What are these Italics you speak of?

What have you got against italics anyway? My wife happens to be one quarter italic.

[Mod says] Thanks for bringing that to our attention! I’ve removed that link, so it should be all better now.

@augustlan :: Just so you know the link would work if it was in the “link”: format.

@johnpowell Thanks JP, but the link was reeeeeaaaaallly long and kind of complicated. I wasn’t sure where it actually ended! I’m a techno-tard.
