I have found a workaround, and that is to do

export TERM=screen-256color

before starting screen.

I have in progress patch for this, but it seems that we will need to update terminfo files, so I think it will be best to release it with major release (v5).

From http://invisible-island.net/xterm/ctlseqs/ctlseqs.txt
Ps = 0 -> Normal (default).
Ps = 1 -> Bold.
Ps = 2 -> Faint, decreased intensity (ISO 6429).
Ps = 3 -> Italicized (ISO 6429).
Ps = 4 -> Underlined.
Ps = 5 -> Blink (appears as Bold).
Ps = 7 -> Inverse.
Ps = 8 -> Invisible, i.e., hidden (VT300).
Ps = 9 -> Crossed-out characters (ISO 6429).

While at it we should probably also add 'invisible' and 'crossed-out'.

Hi, screen does not support italics on terminals which support it, e.g. rxvt-unicode. This is all the more disappointing as emacs trunk now supports italics on terminals which do so.

To reproduce start a terminal emulator which is able to display italics:

urxvt -fn 'xft:liberation mono' -tn rxvt-unicode-256color

do

echo `tput sitm`italics`tput ritm` `tput smso`standout`tput rmso`

see italic font.

do

screen

do

echo `tput sitm`italics`tput ritm` `tput smso`standout`tput rmso`

again

see no italic fonts.

Expected result: should show italics.

Thanx for looking into this, Gregor
