    Italics are usually done using the <em> tag.

    By default, IW strips html out of the content, but you can override this by adding "em" to the "Allowed tags" value under the Profile "Appearance" settings.

    Jiminy... Hating to bother...

    I've tried to figure out how to put the tag, where, what it needs to look like, if there is a formality to doing it, a good while now... What I've tried is not working... I get where to put the "em" in the widget, but not the other part, where to put that, what it needs to look like there, etc...

    In the email that was sent from the forum here when you replied the first "em" above comes with other stuff added around it, presumable html... I can't even paste it here in either form, as it shows above or in the email, without it changing itself... I believe that has to do with it being html, but it is a "goofiness" beyond my present understanding...

    I always try to figure things out first because that is the way I learn, but it only goes so far...

    OK, I figured it out, persistence furthers I guess... In case it is helpful to others like myself who are not "native speakers" in all this stuff, so to speak, I'll tell it here...

    You put the "em" in the the "Allowed tags" value under the Profile "Appearance" setting, as noted above, on the page where you are going to have the excerpts show...

    Then in the backend edit area of each post you have chosen to show up in the widget sidebar area you put text from that post in It's Excerpts field, and then enclose that text with the same "em" tags with this < and this > either side such as show up right here when I set some of this text as italic...

    You can put more text in that field than you have set as the excerpt length in the Intelliwidget, and intelliwidget will just show the number of words you've set, maybe so if you change that setting later you don't need to redo the excerpt in the post excerpt field..?
