Arg! Silly me. Where did I get it in my head to start putting italics instead of italic.

Hey Ed,

I have a couple of suggestions:

1. I'm not entirely sure, but I suspect the ns2 namespace prefix is a holdover from the way that Archivist's Toolkit namespaced xlink attributes. ArchivesSpace uses xlink as the namespace prefix, so you could try replacing "ns2:actuate" with "xlink:actuate" to avoid the error message when printing to PDF. Or, just leave it as actuate="onrequest" without any namespace prefix.
2. The acceptable values for the title @render<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__loc.gov_ead_tglib_elements_title.html&d=DwMFaQ&c=nE__W8dFE-shTxStwXtp0A&r=nzQRpzss_AwHOHAKVWRsNQ&m=a_u9dHCIqwXKtpqNFq4z6c0ODfUp06USEWn-2aLqRqc&s=ektBHCtht75jyLjd3Rb9WPygHd4OZ0vXhUTVaItEzfs&e=> attribute are: altrender, bold, bolddoublequote, bolditalic, boldsinglequote, boldsmcaps, boldunderline, doublequote, italic, nonproport, singlequote, smcaps, sub, super, and underline
Note that the value to italicize text is "italic" with no s. Have you tried <title render="italic">The Alert</title>?

We do have some examples of this working to format component titles in the staff interface:

And in exported PDFs:

We aren't using the PUI so, unfortunately, I cannot confirm if this resolves the different problem that you referenced in the PUI PDF.

Is it possible to format the title of a component? For example, if a title is a published work, make the text italics? In AT, we could put something like this for a component title:  <title ns2:actuate="onrequest" render="italics">The Alert</title>

In ASpace, this structure causes an error when printing to PDF. I removed the ns2:actuate="onrequest" which removed the error condition but no italics in pdf. I tired putting back in actuate="onrequest" but still no italics. This is in the staff interface ( Completely different problem in PUI PDF).

Is there another way to do in ASpace. We’d like that title to display as The Alert (in italics).
