    Dear Sir/Madam,

    While reading some commentaries or reports, I usually encounter the words in parenthesis - "Italics are mine" or "Italics supplied"

    Kindly elaborate.

    Re: Italics

    "Italics are mine" indicates that the author is highlighting a part of the quoted text for his own purposes, and that it was not highlighted in the original.

    I have not seen "Italics provided" - I suppose it could mean the text was so highlighted in the original.
