The font-style property allows you to designate a font to be normal, italic or oblique.
The normal value is the default and refers to the characters being upright. By declaring normal, you can ensure that any previous declaration will not effect a selected text.
If you select the italic value, and it is not available for a particular font, then the oblique value will be applied.
The oblique value slants the characters.
p { font-style: normal; }
p { font-style: italic; }
p { font-style: oblique; }

<span style="font-style: normal;">Normal </span>
<span style="font-style: italic;">Italic </span>
<span style="font-style: oblique;">Oblique </span>
