PS so in fact why bother - just define class c2 to mean italic & you are done!
You DO NOT enclose additional styles in additional quotes (see many styles with SGC-# as examples)
<p class="para italic">
is the proper way to write it.
Pay attention to the order if there are updated
Just to be clear: You are removing C2 class and substituting italic class?
Maybe all you needed to do was add/adjust the c2 class in the style sheet.
(if it was used only in these cases)
