Why is it that I don't get italisized words when I do the <i>italicized</i> coding in my posts .... ?

What am I doing wrong?

Thought I had all the cool html-type stuff turned on in my personal pref-thing ....

You didn't indicate that you are using the square brackets, [], to surround the code letters in place of the gt/lt characters. Are you? If so, it should be working for you if you haven't changed any HTML related defaults.

[Added later]
I see here
that you did use the <> characters instead of the []. So that is the problem.

What Mal said.

The Firing Line uses vB Code which is almost identical to html except for the use of [square] brackets instead of <angled> ones.
