Instead of italics (which is unreadable with small font sizes) I highlight
lowercase arguments in a dark color (namely, DeepSkyBlue4, but any other
dark color will work): it is close to black (which is the default text
color; however, in help-argument-name's defface it might depend on
dark/light background parameter), so it doesn't attract much attention.
OTOH, it still differs from black enough to stand out sufficiently.
So, lowercase+colors is another solution to try.
