ISSUE-292: Synthesised cyrillic italics

Synthesised cyrillic italics

Raised by:
Richard Ishida
Opened on:
3.4. Font style: the font-style property


Given the explanatory text at the end of the section, it may also be worth adding a short paragraph to say:

"Authors should also be aware that synthesised approaches may not be suitable for scripts like Cyrillic, where italic forms are very different in shape, so it is better to select a font that has an italic face."
