    That would be because the player doesn't support such tags or rather doesn't even know they exist. mplayer's regular sub renderer doesn't support italics, so it ignores the tags.

    You would need to strip the tags using a text editor (even notepad would do: ctrl+h, replace "<i>" with "" & "</i>" with "" (you would need to repeat for <b> or <u>)).

    Also try: http://celticdruid.no-ip.com/stripsubs.php

    Basically just runs strip_tags(). If you are running FireFox, then as a bonus you would be able to see spelling mistakes.
