I have a paragraph wrapped with

The trouble is need to change two words in one sentence to red italic.

My code looks something like this:

<p class="txt">
     blah blah blah <style="color: red; font-style: italic;">blah blah</style> blah blah blah

Open in new window

This, of course doesn't work because I don't have a selector like p in front of "style".  The thing is, I'm not sure what selector to use there.  

What selector can I use?
