Emacs-w3m doesn't parse raw html contents, but it works on
halfdump'ed data processed by the external w3m still containing
<b>...</b> tags, and they are highlighted with the w3m-bold-face

Oops, I did see.  The external w3m command doesn't support
italic text, simply deletes <i>...</i> tags in halfdump!  And I
couldn't find a code for italic text in the w3m sources.

Well, though it is only my guess, there may be quite few
character terminals which can display italic text.  Could anyone
correct me?

It will be welcomed if you have an idea.  In my thoughts on it,
if w3m generates complex tags like <bold-italic-underline>, it
will be helpful in order to make emacs-w3m fast. :)
