Format italics in Google sheets cell for scientific names in listview

Move this post to the appropriate forum if this not the correct forum.
I've been able to begin rendering my app from a fixed data base (birds with common name, scientific name, habitat, diet and misc fields). My initial test works. I still need to create the blocks where the variable will be the habitat field, of which there are three fields.

I've read and tried several approaches on displaying images in a google spreadsheet and nothing appears on the screen except an error message. I've tried editing the shared url with the following:

I have six columns:
common name
genus (cannot get italics to generate either)
habitat (this is the variable - there are three)
image - 400 pixels high x 300 pixels wide

ListView cannot present items in italics as far as I know.

Here is a simple example to demonstrate fetching of data and image url for display in an app

Thanks so much. I think my spread sheet format was off for "italics." I will redo database and see if that gives me my original layout.
Thank you for the all the help provided.
Still learning.
