Yes, I just thought that italic is used to emphasize text.

Then add it.

Just tested: it looks good using Konqueror (Linux). :-)

No, I meant to just create you personal stylesheet, don't commit/push

For testing on the fly gimp-help-custom.css is even better.

As long as the stylesheets don't differ we should avoid this, simply 
because we'd had to apply any later changes to every local stylesheet.

This special feature is more interesting for non-European languages
