Indeed. See also the bugs where these were set to use <b> and <i>

And subsequent bugs asking for a change to <em> and <strong> which were marked as INVALID / WONTFIX.

I absolutely agree with your point. I wasn't aware that wiki-syntax inserts in fact <i> tags (and also <b> tags, which bring up the same problems). That needs to be changed. We need clean, semantic markup in order to adjust the styling to any given circumstances, as you perfectly described.

This sucks, but it can't. The italics and bold weren't always used with the semantic meaning of giving emphasis (as I mentioned in my previous e-mail), so blindly replacing them with "semantic" tags and giving them false meanings would be a step back.
