Dear Paul,

Quoting P. R. Stanley (paulrichardstanley at gmail.com):

I'm no typographer, so this is just personal opinion. I would use
parentheses at this point, as it helps distinguishing the numerals'' from
the rest of the text. I'd do it as

\begin{inparaenum}[\itshape (a)]

Hope that helps,

Susan
