Default How do I retrieve "normal" italic?

Another possibility is that the font used does not have an italic variant
installed (see the Windows Fonts folders to check on this) and Word is doing
its best to synthesize an "oblique" form of the font.

Are you clicking on the I button on the toolbar or using the keyboard


What happens if you go to format Font and select italic?

It is possible that (a) the button or keyboard shortcut has been hijacked

reassigned and/or (b) that the font you are using does not support

(e.g. Monotype corsiva is already an italic font and therefore selecting
italic in the font dialog has no effect).
