Carl:

also for the style DisplayFormula.

But even if we do not know which cells to look at, and are not inclined
to search for them, we can get rid of these italics by simply editting:

- select all cells in  the style sheet - convert them to cell expression
- click at the top of the style sheet (to unselect the cells) - use
Find>Find to replace all occurences of SingleLetterItalics->True with
SingleLetterItalics->False
- select all cells
- convert all the cells into display form

(instead of replacing of SingleLetterItalics->True with
SingleLetterItalics->False
we could remove it, but then we lose any record there is a little
difference in that if we make an inline cell and give the enclosing
cell the option SingleLetterItalics->True  then with replacement this
will not affect the inline cell but with removal it will. I guess we
should also remove some unnecessary commas if we are remaoving the
option)
