Dear David,
This is imho more a discussion and therefore more targeted to the
www-html@w3.org mailing list.

There is in fact already a discussion "[XHTML 2.0] emphesis" started
there
[http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-html/2006Jun/0034.html] and
followed by a very long thread
[http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-html/2006Jul/thread.html#msg11]
.

All the messages on the topic:
[http://www.w3.org/Search/Mail/Public/search?keywords=&hdr-1-name=subjec
t&hdr-1-query=%5BXHTML+2.0%5D+emphesis&index-grp=Public__FULL&index-type
=t&type-index=www-html]

All the best,
Alexandre

Hello,

A long time ago, I had an idea which may be worthy of notice on this  
list:

strong is really just a supercharged em, semantic-wise.

So I suggest:

- <em> => <em+1>
- <strong> => <em+2>

This allows for

- a potential <em+3>
- abilty to note something as *less important*. For now, I use  
<small> for this (I use font-size when semantics is not important). A  
possible <em-1> (here, "-" is "minus") could be interesting.

What do you think?
