    Hey JANSOLO,

    Basically, when the font you're using doesn't support a given text style (Italic, Bold, etc) Fireworks applies a "fake" text style to it for you. When you apply a stroke, we have to apply it to the outline of the actual font, so the fake style gets thrown away.

    This technote explains it in more detail: http://www.macromedia.com/support/fireworks/ts/doents/faked_styles.htm

    You *can* apply a stroke to italicized text in Fireworks as long as the font that you're using supports the italic style on it's own. Try applying different fonts to the italicized text after you've applied the stroke. Those that support that style will be italicized.

    Hope that helps!
