Hello Julian,

>Is there a case for doing away with <strong> altogether and having <em>
display in bold by default unless specified as different in the css<

I prefer to use only <strong> that also makes text bold in css-less
browers like the small handheld screen   (view/small screen) in Opera 7.
Italic text generated as default by using <em> is terrible to read in
this small css-less screens in my opinion.
