The question is about the output of this code:
The HTML output contains:
It seems as though some HTML parsers don't regard "font-style: Italic" as a valid font-style. However, if I replace it with "font-style: italic" it works just fine. The client in question is GMail's HTML email viewer, but I'm sure there are others.
The only standard I can find related to this is the SVG 1.1 standard which states:
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/styling.html Section 6.7 Paragraph 2
Obviously the DOCTYPE is xhtml, not an SVG file, but the premise that certain standards expect this particular word to be lowercase lends to the fact that in certain situations "Italic" vs. "italic" does matter.
For the time being I'll just manually replace this substring in all of my HTML documents, but it would be nice if the RadDocument / HtmlFormatProvider guys could implement a permanent fix for this.
