The Editor is correct, for the following reasons:

(1) Semantics must win over styling - as the editor has stated.
(2) When we count in the semantics, then browsers - contrary to what Aryeh is
claiming - do not support combining characters that begins a text node very
well at all.

Example:

While UAs will present/render 

    <b>accént</b>

 as a single word, most of them, including VoiceOver, Internet Explorer,
Firefox, Opera (Webkit is the exception) will present

    <b>acc<span>e</span>&#x301;nt</b>

as two words.
