You can easily ...
Richard nails it. One needs to distinguish the forward price (or just "forward"), which is a number that denotes at which strike you can now enter a forward without upfront payment, and the value of a forward contract, which is typically zero at inception (if the strike chosen is indeed the forward price), but then varies over time, and ends up as $S(T) - ...
adam I still think that your question is a bit vague but perhaps the following will be of some help to you. First of all Itô's theorem is a tool. It will never give you the price by itself. While working out the concrete formula one might end up using it in one context or another. In case of a european option, a borel measurable function $h$ and $X_t$ ...
