Seome ebooks, especially from older Gutenberg sources, won't have italics. Most commercial ebooks will have italics.

There are on-line sources for Huckleberry Finn that do have the italics, e.g.
http://etext.virginia.edu/toc/modeng...c/Twa2Huc.html

But you'd need to convert to Mobipocket format yourself (& then upload here!)
