[Forum] RE: Twilight Convention - how to italicize
I comforted myself by thinking that actually I was going on a fact-finding mission to see what these [i]Twilight [/i]conventions were all about, as more of a journalist. But in this context - when it is not the proper name of the convention, I would have to keep it italicized, correct?

[Forum] Titles of movies in dialog
In a work of fiction a character is listing movies. Sam replied, "Days of Thunder, Jerry Maguire, Rainman, Minority Report, Top Gun." Should the movies be italicized as in regular text?

[Forum] Re: Possessive of italicized name
Thanks, plusone. I couldn't find this in CMOS, which doesn't necessarily mean it's not there. If CMOS doesn't advise to the contrary, I'll italicize only the actual vessel name (if I don't just recast the sentence).

[Forum] RE: Italicize names of foreign government programs?
I concur with Panglossy. I just edited a book with many of these foreign terms, and proper nouns in a foreign language are not italicized. And welcome to the forum! [img]http://www.desismileys.com/smileys/desismileys_4488.gif[/img]

[Forum] RE: Punctuation and italics
Ever get that feeling that you might be right, but you're still not happy? :) I once asked a math teacher why an equation wound up proving something completely incorrect. I knew it was wrong, she knew it was wrong, and yet neither or us could figure out why. The next day she showed me where I'd us
