I had already gone back to 2.1.5 before I saw your post , but your point about <em> versus <i> got me wondering...so I loaded 2.4.0 again and replaced <em> with <i>, and it is still showing as bold. So this is definitely a bug. The following also does not work:

Code:
<span class="em">text</span>
where em is:

Code:
.em {font-style:italic}
This is still showing as bold, whereas

Code:
.em {font-style:normal}
shows as normal. I conclude that the bug is not that the Glo is treating em as bold, but that for the italic font it is actually picking the bold font.

But not all fonts are affected:

Built-in:

Amasis - OK
Avenir - broken
Caecilia - OK
Georgia - OK
Gill Sans - broken
Kobo Nickel - broken
Malabar - OK
Ryumin - OK
Gothic MB101 - OK

Side-loaded:

Amaranth - OK
Charis SIL - broken
Charis SIL SMCP - broken
Driod Serif - broken
Fontin - OK
Gentium Basic - broken (not bold or italic)
Gentium Book Basic - broken (not bold or italic)

There just does not seem to be any way to display italics for some fonts in 2.4.0.
