If you look through the DSSSL stylesheets, you will find that (make
paragraph ...) and (make sequence ...) (I think) accept a font-posture:
attribute, which is where you would put 'italic, 'upright or 'bold etc. I
don't think that this is well catered for in the DSSSL stylesheets, and is
perhaps something that should be changed.
