Problem description: 
Spell check dialog should use document formatting, especially italics.

The lack of this sometimes makes it more difficult to determine the correction without having to refer to the actual document, which is made difficult because the text in the dialog box is not highlighted in the document (and so it is usually difficult to find the text in the document - especially on a high resolution monitor)

Steps to reproduce:
1. ....
2. ....
3. ....

Current behavior:
Italics shown as normal text.
See screenshot. document text shown below dialog box.

Expected behavior:
Text in italics to be shown in italics in the dialog box - and bold, etc
