Bolding forwarded email subject

Is this possible? I couldn't find a way. Maybe it's the same situation for bolding an email in the list or marking sent email as priority; i..e. not implemented yet. TIA

Per RFC 5322, section 3.6.5, the Subject line must contain human-readable content.
Marketers like to include emojis in the Subject to attract attention and if I receive such an E-mail, it goes straight into Trash, without my looking at it. I'm sure they use software to add the emojis.
I believe such e-mails actually violate RFC 5322, because an emoji isn't 'human-readable', it's an image.
Bolding, italicizing, or underlining the Subject may still show the text as human-readable, but I would personally treat such E-mail as I would with an emoji in the subject. I have received spam with the Subject bolded and italicized.
