Single character in Italics. Ervin Doyle;

I recently purchased Mathematica 3.0.1. When I type a single character 
like "a" it comes out in italics. However, when I type two or more 
characters like "ad" or "abc" I get the characters in bold face. This 
italic single character appears when I'm setting up equations like f 
:= ... or g = ....Is there a reason for this? Do I have to use 
double characters  in my definitions etc. to avoid the italics when  I 
don't want them.
Thanks Ervin Doyle
