That's funny. I don't see it coming out as italic in the WebKit  
shipped with Leopard. Instead, I see it coming out as an odd bold that  
seems to have the edges of the characters stroked, leaving a very  
narrow line in the middle white.

Here's a screenshot where you can see what I'm talking about (zoomed  
in a bunch so you can see it more clearly):
