Text styling - bold, italics, underline

  To emphasis text other than headings, bold text can be use sparingly. Italics and underlines should not be used.

Underlining should not be used to emphasize text. Italics should not be used in written copy with the exception of a photo cutline. On occasion italics may be used in marketing collateral but should not appear in text otherwise. Underlining and italics may be also used in citations according to citation style guidelines. 

Review the Editorial Style Guide for additional style and formatting guidelines.
