    What's this? There I was, typing away on e-mail, maybe getting a little wordy, and suddenly things started to type in Italics! Never happened before, how did it happen?

    I'm using the new smaller aluminum keyboard and getting used to it, although my little fingers are always flicking something I don't want, adding :, or ;, oh a lot of ;, and as together, lots of aaaaa :D so I press on.

    Anyway, when typing I must have flicked some key combo to make typing become italic. Like it, how can I do it again? :confused:

    Not to worry. :0) Just select everything in italics and press Command and i keys to change back or undo.

    Command and b makes type bold, Command and u underlines it. Pressing the same combos undo things.
