I was looking at, with my iPod, an answer I gave for the meta site of English Language & Usage, and I noticed that words that are supposed to be in italics are shown in bold.

This is the source and the preview of the answer, as shown from a Mac.

The answer shows the words in italics, when seen from Safari 5.0.5 on my Mac (as any other browser running on a computer does).

This is the same answer shown from the iPod.

This was fixed in our last deploy.

  • I should remember to post also the SE revision reported when I notice the issue. :-)
