Thanks DaleDe! Is this the HarryT tutorial that you're talking about? It seems a little old. I found a few hints regarding what to do here as well.

I didn't know about the lack of CSS support; I just started to read up on the MOBI format. How is it handled then, by using plain HTML attributes, and styling text with
Code:
<i>italic</i>
instead of
Code:
<span style="font-style:italic;">italic</span>
?
