Italics in Mobipocket books

I have tried to include italics in the mobipocket files I create (I use <i></i> for that, I write the html myself, please don't say I have to use BookDesigner , that's not my question right now), but while this works in the Mobipocket Reader on my Windows machine, it doesn't display italics on the Cybook.

Is this a shortcoming in the Cybook mobipocket reader? Or can I use a different way to use italics?

Thanks!

(I use Mobipocket Creator)

Do you have an italics font loaded on the Cybook?

Ah! I thought my font contained everything, but indeed: no italics! Thank you very much!

I thought that the machine would "synthesise" an italic font if a "real" font is not present?

As my experience shows, it doesn't.
