From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.1b) Gecko/20020803
BuildID:    2002080303

When an HTML I element contains accented characters, no text within the I
element is displayed italicized.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Access the testcase (to be attached shortly).

Actual Results:  The I element containing only US-ASCII characters italicized,
but the I element containing accented ISO 8859-1 characters didn't.

Expected Results:  Text in both I elements should have been italicized.

I'm not sure why one displays antialiased and the other doesn't, either.
Separate bug?

I viewed the page on MacOSX and it looks ok (italicized).
ruixu: is it MacOS9 specific?  If so, then please assign to nhotta.

It sure doesn't work for me using FizzillaCFM/2002080303.

Works for me on 08-05 branch build / Mac 9.2.2.
Notice, the user agent string is for Mac OS X in reporter's original report,
probably on trunk build.  But I don't see it on both branch and trunk build /
Mac 10.1.5..

Any thoughts on this one, rbs@maths.uq.edu.au? It showed up about the same time
MathML went in.

Are these bugs still there? They should be gone by now.
