This was my understanding back when I "read somewhere that I should have 
used \emph" and when, as a result, I changed \textit to \emph.

The "misadventure" started in a complicated way, with commutative 
diagrams while using the old pdfsync.sty with
culminating with the three-part example I gave on 1/17/05 5:00 PM
On Voisin's suggestion, I changed \emph to \textit  in the headings and, 
indeed, all is well now.

So, my current understanding (with the emphasis on current) is that 
\emph is still the way to go except in "movable input (like the argument 
of \section, \caption, etc.)" where it needs either to be protected or 
replaced by \textit.

If anybody is missing something, there is no doubt it is I.
