Open Captions - Italic tags <i>...</i> not recognized on two lines of text
When I import an .srt file with all some of the text italicized, I see <i>...</i> tags instead of italics in the burned-in subtitles.
When there is one line of text or one word tagged it comes out as italic.
When the whole sentence is marked as italic and it's on two lines, Premiere Pro doesn't recognize the tag and displays in in Regular font
with <i>...</i> tags.
In order to display italics on both lines of text in one subtitle, each line has to be tagged <i>...</i> separately.
Please, fix the error, so when a whole block of text on two lines is marked with only one tag <i>...</i> , Premiere will understand it has to be italics.

In general the subtitle function in Premiere is not great - this bug really could do with updating as could the way we can edit subtitles and their position and styling.
I'd also like to see many other export formats like xml

How was the .srt file created? Can you send me a copy?
Possible workaround is to open in notepad and save with UTF-8 option.
