The only difference is the italic applied on the same face...




Because \textem{} is neither LaTeX nor TeX but something you might have invented. I can't find it my LaTeX Companion, second edition, from January 2005 ...



The is not much sense in distinguishing between so-called "TeX" and so-called "LaTeX." LaTeX understands TeX quite well. Do you change your voice or do something else while speaking and using a word that has its origin in Latin or one that has Celtic or Scandinavian ancestors or one that has been taken over from English or German?


I think it's possible to work through all available TeX sources on CTAN and determine the few thousand code words that they get fontified differently then obvious LaTeX code words.
