I don't know if anyone will read this, but in case you do and find Chrome is showing everything in italics, here is what i did to fix it.
First off, let me give credit where it's due. I got the fix from, of all places Yahoo! Answers.
Here is the step by step fix.
1) Open the Chrome menu bar on the upper-right ( https://storage.googleapis.com/support-k... )
2) Click on settings
3) Scroll all the way down, and click show advanced settings.
4) Scroll down a bit until you see "Web Content"
5) Click "Customize Fonts" and you can adjust what fonts you want.
I did that and everything went right back to normal. If you want to share this with Groupthink or any tech sub-blogs you have posting rights to feel free. Have a great weekend.
