 Replying to [ticket:3606 nickshanks]:
 > The general concensus was that for WYSIWYG editors to be inserting
 <strong> and <em> is wrong

 I don't have a strong opinion either way, but the current behavior seems
 consistent with other blog editors and web site editors. It would be
 interesting to look at it from what is in practice.

 I like [http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum21/9344.htm this comment]:

 "I use <strong> at work and <b> at home.


 because I have different versions of dreamweaver at home and work. One, by
 default, uses the <b> tag when I go to bold text in the wysiwyg editor and
 the other, by default, uses the <strong> tag in the same scenario."
