Comment (by rcain):

 i would also like to support calls for a fix to this issue please.

 my particular case (and i suspect it is not uncommon), is when creating a
 table containing  (only) font-awesome ticks as i tags. (obviously parent
 td's have no other content).

 PS. i tried the patch #28940 above, but to no avail in my example - it
 just strips all my hard entered table data (ticks)!

 i am using latest WP 4.2.4.

 (currently investigating whether there are any alternative HTML/CSS
