Correcting a typing blunder

Every so often I am typing some notes into a text cell and I hit the
wrong combination of keys and the text cell unravels. Pressing control-
z is no help. I give an example below. I think I was going for Control-
i to make the next symbol italics and messed up by typing Control-
Shift-i. How do I convert this back into text which has an equation in
it? This I can easily retype but it is annoying when you have a long
paragraph with several nicely typeset equations.

If you copy the text below into a notebook highlight the cell bracket
and press Alt-7 followed by Control-Shift-I you will have the messed
up version that  I have in the notebook.

Many thanks
Hugh Goyder
