I cannot understand the distinction the draft draws between <em>
("indicates emphasis for its contents") and <strong> ("indicates higher
importance for its contents than that of the surrounding content"). The
example doesn't help me: "On <strong>Monday</strong> please put the
rubbish out, but <em>not</em> before nightfall!" Please clarify this 
distinction or drop <strong>.
