Oh dear, this isn't correct, Cindy. smile. The proofreader will not put in the italics if the scanner has removed them. The scanner needs to preserve italics if they are in the text if they possibly can.

There have perhaps been exceptions when a proofreader who is both sighted and had access to a book agreed to add italics back into a book that had them stripped out during the scanning process, but it wouldn't happen as a matter of course.

If you can keep he italics, do. If you can't, make a note and teh proofreader will make the words italicized. Can you do the right formatting for navigation? Does teh book need to be proofed by a sighted person?
