I would do this in your server-side code. Something like: (untested

function matchPart($part)
   $matches = getMatches($part);
  $result = "<ul>n";
  foreach ($match in $matches) {
    $result .= "<li>".preg_replace("/$part/g", "<em>$part</em>",
  // Return your $result however you're doing it ...

Ajax.Autocompleter IIRC concatenates all the text nodes from the
selected <li>, so the <em> tags would just be omitted in the submitted
