[Forum] RE: Comma or no comma?
words as words are generally italicized not set in quotation marks. Chicago uses italics for this example ... why would you set in quotes?

[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] italicizing Kama Sutra
Hi, all, I'm editing a text (by another editor) that refers to the Kama Sutra in a list of other books; the title is not italicized. Wondering if this falls under CMOS 8.102. Thanks much.

[Forum] RE: Italicized or Bold
If you have the option to do so, you may want to discuss this with the book's designer. A good designer may be able to subtly "soften" the bold so it stands out on the page without overwhelming the rest of the type.

[Forum] Re: Possessive of italicized name

[Forum] Socratic dialogue
Should the title of a Socratic dialogue—in this case, The Meno—be italicized? Quotation marks, maybe?

[Forum] Christ's Passion
For those with more knowledge of Christianity than me (pretty much everyone), should Christ's Passion be italicized since it's the name of a performance of sorts?

[Forum] RE: CMOS vs CMS
Hi, all! Over the weekend I had the opportunity to hear Carol Fisher Saller introduce the updates to [i]CMOS[/i] 17 to a group of editors. During the Q&A she confirmed that the proper abbreviation is [i]CMOS[/i], italicized, since [i]CMOS[/i] is NOT the Bible.

[Forum] Should a series title be italicized?
I would italicize [i]The Lord of the Rings[/i] because it's the overall title of the story. But I wouldn't italicize the Chronicles of Narnia because they are seven distinct stories. Am I splitting hairs in a meaningful way? ~Valerie
