 Q: I have a question about italics in quotes. In the book I'm working on, the author has compiled an extensive list of quotes from other sources but then gone in and added italics to many sections of the quotes. Sometimes just a few words at a time but other times, entire sentences and even paragraphs are italicized. Almost always, the endnote for the quote then includes the phrase "​emphasis added"​. From a print disability point of view, many of those italics are unnecessary and present a barrier to readability. But I hesitate to change the author'​s intention of highlighting parts of the quote, especially since they'​ve typed "​emphasis added" in the endnote. Are the rules about when to apply emphasis style and when not to different in this situation? If I do remove the italics, do I also delete the "​emphasis added" from the endnote? Q: I have a question about italics in quotes.
