Hi guys,

Does anyone know where use of italic fonts stands from an accessibility
perspective?

should they be entirely avoided and bold or bullets be used to pull out
information?

Users viewing sites with italic fonts may have trouble if they are using
assistive technology such as zoom tools and screen resizers?

Be interested to see what you guys think.

Jake.
