I am not sure that I understand the source of emacs-w3m, but it looked
to me like it is searching out the tags and applying whatever
fontification is necessary. Is this not the case? I know that, as far
as w3m goes, the italic tag is a no-op, but I do not understand how that
affects what is done by emacs-w3m. Please help me to understand. Is it
the case that if w3m does not render a tag that emacs-w3m cannot do
anything with it?

I would change the color. My personal preference would be to handle it
the same way as font-lock-comment-face. That way one could see that
there is something going on there, and when it is spoken by emacspeak I
can hear the difference. The pre tag is rendered by w3m, so I think
this might not be a problem.

As soon as I have something put together, I will be happy to do so.
My idea on this will probably not work. I looked at the source and saw
the way bold text is handled. It looks to me like when emacs-w3m
encounters the b tag it applies the fontification. Because this has
been tried before, I must now assume that my initial idea was wrong.
I'll try to cobble something together tomorrow and test it for a bit,
then post it.

Not a problem. It is almost time for bed here anyway.
