ordered list with italic type

I have minimal html experience.  Just need to update some text in a database field with some html tags to render an ordered list.  

The list is deeply nested.  I'm using <ol type="where my list type is equal to one of the following: A, 1, a, i".  The one section requires italic lower case type.  For example:

a. Monday
b. Tuesday
c. Wednesday

No css.  Silly question, but how do I get the italics in there?  What's the best way to approach this?

Thank you.

You can do it like this:
<ol>
<li style="font-style:italic;"><span style="font-style:normal;">Monday</span></li>
<li style="font-style:italic;"><span style="font-style:normal;">Tuesday</span></li>
<li style="font-style:italic;"><span style="font-style:normal;">Wednesday</span></li>
</ol>

Hi Dan,
Thank you for responding so quickly.  I just tried it.  It's close!  It rendered an italic number, not an italic lower case letter:

1. Monday
2. Tuesday
3. Wednesday

Any tweak I can make to get the lower case letter?

Yup.
<ol type="a">
<li style="font-style:italic;"><span style="font-style:normal;">Monday</span></li>
<li style="font-style:italic;"><span style="font-style:normal;">Tuesday</span></li>
<li style="font-style:italic;"><span style="font-style:normal;">Wednesday</span></li>
</ol>
