Thanks.  Doulos SIL would be great if it had an italic.
No philologist can live without an italic, since italic
is used for printing words and phrases from the languages
of study (except for literal quotes from sources --
reproducing misspellings and oddities which an editor would
even out -- which are sometimes printed in bold.)
