Status: Partially Accepted
Change Description: see diff given below
Rationale: I've added a similar paragraph to the <b> section.

I haven't added class="" to each example, as it is not the case that every use
would need a class. For example, most of the <b> element cases are just using
it to mean "keyword", which is basically the generic meaning of the element.
Similarly, some of the <i> cases (e.g. the dream sequence) are just using it to
mean "alternate voice", which is the generic meaning.

I haven't changed the lede example because that's how the BBC have it. Using
CSS only wouldn't necessarily be the right solution here, since the lede is its
own thing whether the document is styled or not.
