Need To Target Italic Words And Apply Italic Character Style

I'm working on an 800 page document that will be exported to reflowable ePUB. The body copy has a paragraph style applied using Myriad Pro Regular as the typeface. Throughout the document there are instances of italic words that I need to apply an italic character style to. My first thought was to use GREP for this, but it doesn't look like it can sniff out italic characters (maybe I'm wrong about this?). Any help is appreciated.

It's only an island if you look at it from the water.

Create the character style for italic and use a Text find change:

  • Find format: Font style > Italic
  • Change format: Character style > your character style name

Barb's answer is bang on... I just wanted to throw out a kudos for doing this design detail right and not leaving a doc — especially for EPUB export — as spot or generic formatting. That's professionalism.
