Italicize Species Names in an Article Title

You can apply rich text formatting to elements like the title by manually adding the following HTML-like tags to fields in your Zotero library:

  • <i> and </i> for italics

  • <b> and </b> for bold

  • <sub> and </sub> for subscript

  • <sup> and </sup> for superscript

  • <span style="font-variant:small-caps;"> and </span> for smallcaps

  • <span class="nocase"> and </span> to suppress capitalization rules (e.g., for foreign phrases within English titles)

Zotero will automatically replace these tags by the specified formatting in bibliographic output. E.g. “<i>Pseudomonas aureofaciens</i> nov. spec. and its pigments” will become “Pseudomonas aureofaciens nov. spec. and its pigments”.
