Because I need to type in Spanish often but want to keep a primarily English keyboard layout I use the United States - International keyboard. The
only thing that takes some getting used to with that setting is the need to double-space after a quotation mark or apostrophe, or the need to
double-space afterwards when the intent is to make a quotation but not alter the letter character of those that can be altered.
You can access that US - International setting through your Control Panel or sometimes from the keyboard character in the lower-right toolbar.
Sorry, I can't answer your question for sure about using italics in thread titles. You might experiment with HTML codes as that is the way to alter or
