Unfortunately there seems to be no way to do that for the moment.
In the page source, maybe `span' tags around words like
...<span class=b>nahe <span class=sd>dabei</span>:</span>...
control the appearance of the contents. If w3m (not emacs-w3m)
knows how it should treat those attributes, it will interpret
them into the ones that emacs-w3m can handle. However, currently
w3m simply strips them as follows:
$ echo '<span class=b>nahe <span class=sd>dabei</span>:</span>'\
| w3m -halfdump -T text/html
This is why emacs-w3m displays them with no attribute.
