The SimpleQuiz over at is always worth a read. The latest, as usual, raises many good points. If you need emphasis, bold and italics how should you combine the markup and css?
Personally, I rarely use or simply because most of the time my bold or italics really is purely a style thing. That’s why I don’t like most of the options, they ignore the fact that the only none style point is the emphasis. Using is just plane wrong. The best suggestion I saw was to style it. But the best point I saw was who would ever use bold italics?
