There is a new tool for those who; like me, have struggled to communicate their strongest feelings in writing using italics alone. This tool fills a real need for me. Generally I regard the use of all - capital letters as tantamount to shouting & I prefer not to shout. I have been a dedicated champion of italics. Indeed; one could characterize me as having been devoted to italics. Therefore I want to emphasize that I am in no way abandoning italics, simply heralding the arrival of its cousin; the 'extra-slanty' italics, for use with extremely important words.
