Here "cell" includes inline cells.

-------

For example, with the Default style sheet, in a text cell constructed by
- choose Style>Text
- type f
- choose Edit>Exression Input > Start Inline Cell - type h+ g
- choose Edit>Exression Input > End Inline Cell - typwe f

The middle h and g are in  italics (h+g is in its own in line cell that
has Traditional style)

Setting the option SingleLetterItalics -> False  fo the entire text cell
has no effect o  th is. However if you selct the inline cell, say by
clicking on + repeatedly until the section gets no greater and then
uing the Options Inspector to set the option SingleLetterItalics ->
False  for the inline cell (or you can edit the cell exprssion) then
the itaalics will go.

Inline cells are automatically generated in text cells when you
construct 2D expressions. You can recogn ize them by clicking on one of
the letters - the cell should show up with a pink background.
