font-style:italic doesn't work in span tag

Reported by: floflorent Owned by: deryni
Milestone: Component: XMPP
Version: 2.7.10 Keywords: xmpp span font italic tags xhtml


I've developed an Android application to control my phone over xmpp protocol and I format my phone responses in XHTML.

When I create a span tag with "font-weight:bold" it works fine. But when I use "font-style:italic" it's doesn't work.

It must be a pidgin issue because it works fine with other xmpp client.

Style attributes are favored of structural elements. From XEP-0071:
The use of structural elements is NOT RECOMMENDED where presentational styles are desired, which is why very few structural elements are specified herein. Implementations SHOULD use appropriate 'style' attributes (e.g., <span style='font-weight: bold'>this is bold</span> and <p style='margin-left: 5%'>this is indented</p>) rather than XHTML structural elements (e.g., <strong/> and <blockquote/>) wherever possible.

Moreover can you raise the tag number limit ?
