Caption Italics do not work

The specific text is: "that is, in Latin, <i>Catechesi Tradendae</i> ." My intent is to render "Catechesi Tradendae" in italics. It works as such in Subtitle Edit, and says that JW Player should support basic HTML tags. I've tried saving it as an .SRT and a .VTT. Any help is greatly appreciated

Hi there,

What version of the player are you using and can you provide a URL to a reproduction page showing the italics not working? I tested embedding the latest version of the player, 7.6.1, with a VTT file that has the following contents with italics in the first line and they appear successfully.
