In one of the glitches, it was, you're right. The run-on of italics was caused by using < text text text > to signify an email - there were in fact zero italics in the story, but the damn html thingie picked up something that wasn't meant to be html code at all, and thought it was italics. So I won't do that again.
But the other ones - they were double and triple checked, and it was something "new" going on - I was doing it exactly the same, something external changed which I didn't/still don't know about. Not worth the hassle, though, to find out.
