I don't know what text editor you work with, but Notepad++ on Windows has usefully robust regex search capabilities. I believe that using a search and replace with the regex option, using the text between the double quotes, would have the desired effect:

Find: "(\s)-(\w+)-(\s)"
Replace with: "\1<i>\2</i>\3"

Doing that on the text for "An Avatar in New Avalon" makes 99 replacements, and searching for <i> doesn't look like it yielded false positives, at least.
