Hello,

This one is tough, in my opinion.

All my standard stegano analysis has given me nothing.  I assumed that the italics gave a hint, but if so, it didn't help.  Do I need to think outside the box for this one?  If so, where?!!!

cheers

No, you don't have to think outside the box, it's the _exact opposite_!
Have a good look, maybe you find something uncommon...

I left (at least) 3 clues which should get you on the path to solve it.
Before trying to solve it, every time you see something, ask yourself why ?
It's a stegano but unless you just guessed the right way, you will need a bit of investigating.
Once you figure out where the text is hidden, it should not be hard to retrieve it.

And yeah, I tried to make it a little bit harder than usual (but not much harder).

Finally got it  Grin  The clues are there, but it took a while to piece them together.
