[Cyclelicious] New comment on Studded Tires.

John A. Ardelli has left a new comment on your post "Studded Tires":

What are you talking about? I never use italics! Where in the world would you get such a rediculous idea?!

If you ever find a post of mine that ever uses any italics, I swear I'll eat my lunch! :P

OK. In all seriousness, I use them because I find print is dead. It's hard to express emotion and tone of voice. Basically, I use italics for any word that, if I were speaking, I'd probably emphasize with tone. I don't do that so much in my formal writing, but in informal writing like blogging and E-mail, I do it fairly frequently (though, in E-mail, I tend to write emphasized words in ALL CAPS instead of using italics because I generally E-mail in plain ASCII text only).
