Italic Comments Make Me Happy

I’ve always liked italicizing my comments, but for whatever reason that’s a simple option which Microsoft in their infinite wisdom has never seen fit to make easy to do in Visual Studio.  I stumbled on a free font from ‘damieng’ called “Envy Code R”.  In addition to being a very attractive and clean monospaced (non-proportional width) font, it has a ‘VS’ version that marks the italic version as bold as a stupid trick that fools Visual Studio into letting you specify italic comments:
