Here and there in my article, there are paragraphs that need to set a different tone. So far I’ve used italic Times New Roman and indented the paragraph:
This looks good if it’s one line sentence or a five-line paragraph. But for a page-long preamble it seems that large blocks of italic text are harder to read:
Is there a way to set the tone for the preamble the same as the other paragraphs? A different typeface maybe? Or is de-italicizing the only way?
Indents, rules, flourishes are just for making a distinction, not really setting the tone of the text as they don’t change the typeface. Only italic or a font change can do that, I think.
