Applying style outside content area?

Finishing off a project here and now find that some text which is entered into a field outside the TinyMCE content area in the back end needs to have a section italicized. Rather than do a redesign at this stage, I'd like to find some way of applying italics to the text in question. I tried using the standard HTML italic tags, but they ended up showing up in the text as seen in the browser (and the next was not italicized). Alternatively, is it possible to have a second area defined as a TinyMCE edit area as well?

I solved this by replacing $Introduction (my field name) with $Introduction.RAW in the template, which allowed me to use the italic tags.
