Default Forum Titles, Italic or not?

Why are some forum titles in italic, and some are not?

None are, so far as I can see. Can you point to an italicized title?

Do you mean the message “titles” as they appear in the thread view? Those are italic if they are picked up from the messages. Is that what you mean?

Default This is a title

It looks like what Kathleen said. The alternate text indicates that the header is using the first few words from the message. The other choice is when the writer of the message specifies a title. Then it uses normal text.

Mostly I enter a title in a reply. Apparently most replies are not done that way.

Very few. If you let the beginning of your reply become the “title” you find that the thread view tells a little story.
