This seems a strange question, but then again all my employers have used a
style guide to answer this (contract and permanent). I have also had to
create two guides myself, and I chose to use italics ONLY to represent
variable information (filenames and so on). Some people use them for
emphasis (must, not, etc) but I personally prefer bold for this. I don't
think it matters too much, as long as you are consistent.
