Is it possible to have quoted posts not appear in italics?

The italics is difficult to read.

Thanks!

    Others' thoughts on this? Like to get a consensus.

    I think I've found someone help me make some of these changes y'all have been asking about.

    General usability guidelines suggest not to use italics on websites just as Windflower has suggested - they are difficult for some users to read.

    See "legibility" on this site:

    It's important for it to be clear that the text is quoted, but this can be handled in other ways besides italics - like the box already in place; perhaps a background color as long as the contrast is still good.
