Use of italics for quotations[edit]

This article uses a lot of italics which appear to be direct quotations. Per Wikipedia:Quotations: "do not put quotations in italics unless the material would otherwise call for italics, such as for emphasis and the use of non-English words (see the Manual of Style)." Quotation marks should be used instead. In general we should be wary about overusing quotes also, so consider re-writting the information in your own words (see WP:QUOTEFARM).

Thanks, in a couple of cases I've left them as they function as italics. --Rskp (talk) 05:57, 7 April 2012 (UTC)
