Right, that's one of the packages I found reference to. Nice, but not
what I need.

I think that's really all I need to know.

Conclusion: There is no native Org-mode markup beyond
bold/italic/underline that can change LaTeX/PDF text styling; it can
only be done with embedded LaTeX escapes.

For my use case, I'll try changing to exporting to HTML with embedded
CSS, then converting the HTML to PDF using htmldoc.

Thanks, Nick.
