In my opinion, this is a matter of what fonts are being used, as well as the
default font size. This needs careful testing under many Web browsers and
platforms however. I sometimes prefer to inherit bits of CSS from sites that
have done all that cross-browser/platform work /already/, e.g.:
font-family: Georgia, "Times New Roman", Times, serif;
How about the following for italics?
font-family : Times New Roman, serif;
font-size : 150%;
Just my opinion(/taste)...
