If you're editing a latex file you should be using a latex mode to do
that, and the latex mode will provide these sorts of commands. Auctex is
a great one: using that, select the word and then hit C-c C-f C-i to
surround it with \textit{}. Or just hit the command with nothing
selected, and point will be left between the braces, ready to type.
