Nested em elements can accomplish the same thing where needed (with
only one added character in length), rendering the strong element
basically useless. Style sheets can be used to suggest presentation as
needed. For example:

    em{font-style:italic}
    em em{font-weight:bold;font-style:normal}

Or anything else you'd like.
