The function sets the referenced string's (RTF) styled text to italic.

$Text = $Text + "This is " + "some".italic + " text"; 

adds "this is some text" to the end of $Text.

Note that $Text is currently the only attribute capable of holding styled text. String attributes and action code variables, i.e. var(), cannot store styled text. If passed styled text the latter will store the unstyled version of the text being passed. See a more detailed explanation.
