well, I've attempted a blanket change of all occurrences of '<a>...</a>' 
to be '[=...=]' and bikeshed got the flu and impressively projectile 
barfed to the extent that it was not at all clear what caused it.

So doing the '<a>...</a>' to be '[=...=]' thing will take some work 
beyond a simple-minded blanket find-n-replace (sigh).

Also, bikeshed ignores the emphasis portion of '*[=...=]*' and renders 
the '*'s which seems..uh..suboptimal.

So for now some '<em>...</em>' constructs need to stay around -- 
'<em>[=...=]</em>' works correctly.
