Colourshift: how to apply a google font's italic style to a blockquote

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

Hello -

I want to apply the italic style of the Google Font I am using for Headings to the blockquote. I don't want just a slant apply to the normal style of the font. I want the actual italic and to add large curly quotes also to the blockquote style.

When I specify a Google font in Buildr, does the genuine italic style also become available?

If it does not or I want two different font weights or styles available for headings , How to add a the second one?

I tried using custom CSS but that didn't work either, although my CSS maybe wrong

The block quote is in Grid 13 , row #Grid4

You can see it is not applying the italic style. Instead it is slanting the normal font.

Hi Sarah

What do you have in the google font section?

Regarding Google font italic - no I don't think so as it's regarded as a different font set

Here is how I entered the blockquote font in the custom font fields in Buildr.

I suspect it is wrong. I didn't add a # row position for example. I am also not sure I have the Google font properly specified.
