You can get the name of the current face by using C-e M-v when point is
over the text in question, but I fear this is not what you are looking
for.  Currently I do not believe what you want is possible.

Try the above mentioned command and see if it is what you are looking
for.  By the way, this is not limited to html documents, but any text in
a buffer.

If the explanation in my response to your previous post is not clear
enough, let me know and I will try to provide more clarity.

I looked in the archive and, sure enough, the information was there.
A single use license for the runtimes is slated to be available from
this site:

http://www.ttsynth.com/

I would suggest that you try to give them a ring or an email to see when
it will be available.  It has been a long time coming.  

If you cannot wait, this site will sell you an SDK for around $300 or
bulk licenses for $5.00 with a minimum of 300.

If anyone else wants to chime in here with more information, please do
so.
