Font-Style

The font style.

Syntax
      font-style: italic | normal | oblique | inherit  ;

italic - A font face created by the type designer typically with more calligraphic, slanted characters.
Normal - Standard upright text.
oblique - Slants slightly to the right like italic, but it uses the same glyphs as normal roman type, except distorted.
inherit - inherit from the parent element.

Examples:
h1 { font-style: normal; }
#ss64id { font-style: italic
; }
.ss64class { font-style: oblique; }

Try it:

Italic text is used to provide extra emphasis and is often used for book and movie titles, foreign words and variable names.
There may still be times when using a <B> or <I> HTML tag to indicate visual formatting will be the most efficient solution.
