Thanks all. I was just getting so frustrated having to redo something that I thought was done, I couldn't take a step back. I was told that the Regular package included Italic fonts, but upon examination as suggested, it doesn't. I did try Stuart's suggestion of Oblique and it looks like garbage, that's for sure as Stuart also warned about.
Ok, grumble, grumble, grumble . . . I really wish this client would not be so stuck on using these fonts. Thanks all, I appreciate the help and understanding from y'all.

They have supplied me with two font sets for this font - one is Regular weight (to be used for any paragraph tags that are non-Heading tags) and a Bold weight (to be used for any paragraph tags that are Heading tags). I have several character formats in my catalog that I want to be able to continue to use. One of these tags is Emphasis. All properties for the tag are set to As Is with the exception of the angle, which I have set to Italic. When I apply this tag to any paragraph tags that are non-Heading tags (i.e., the tags use the regular weight version of this proprietary font), the tag is apparently not applied. The font angle does not change, and in the lower left corner of the page identifying what tags are being used, I see Emphasis with an asterisk in front of it (*Emphasis). I thought that maybe I had corrupted the tag somehow, so I applied the same tag to some text that used simply good old Times New Roman font in the same document, and voila, the text was immediately italicized and the tag showed Emphasis without an asterisk. I have not really ever had to use proprietary fonts before in a FM source file, so I am obviously missing something behind the use of such fonts that is preventing character tags from being applied as expected. Any guidance/assistance is greatly appreciated. Regards, TVB _______________________________________________ You are currently subscribed to framers as m...@mattrsullivan.com.
