Don - If I understand you correctly, you are trying to format the National
Archives series using the codes in the Source Qualifier text fields on the
General tab of the Source definition. Is this correct? Where you need to
put the italic codes is around the FORMATTING VARIABLE on the Formatting
page, in this case you would have
< This database is based on [ITAL][SOURCE QUALIFIER][ITAL0].>
Formatting for fields which populate the variables must be done on the
variables themselves, not on the raw data.
Hope this makes sense.

Subject: [GENBOX] Text formatting in source field
Is it possibly to use [ITAL] and [ITAL0] text formatting codes on text
in a source field?
I'm trying to design an online database source template that will cite,
in the bibliographic form of the citation, the original data on which
the online database is based. For example, a citation to Ancestry.com's
"New York Passenger Lists" would show (in the bibliographic form) that
the online database was derived from the National Archives series of
microfilmed manifests. To do this, the template for the bibliographic
form ends with: < This database is based on [SOURCE QUALIFIER].> But
italicizing the title of the National Archives series in the [SOURCE
QUALIFIER] field, using [ITAL] and [ITAL0], doesn't seem to work. Should it?
