Yes.  I've tried to change the stylesheet in the beginning of that page

<style type="text/css"> td { font-style: italic } </style>

but lynx seems to be unaware of stylesheets (and mine would not be a
right correction anyway).

Yes.  And I'd rather prefer it to simply borrow the character, without
any transformation.  (At least, there should be such an option.)  Many
characters may be missing just because there are not enough pixels.
Just imagine what your cherished (TM) should become after emboldening
