Sorry, but what is an "italic correction"? Does it only apply to math mode, or anything the command is used inside any other command - like \textbf?

I thought of continuing this question line, but I rather make it into it's own question: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/47259/…

Where did you get that document? Do you know if it's a part of some larger book "Xetex for linguists"? If so - I would love to know where to find it! Thanks

Thanks! His answer seems to imply that I shouldn't use itshape in my document if I want to have an italic word - like for the name of the city or a scientific term.. What should I use?
