I'm as much a one for semantic markup as anyone, but it's worth getting the facts straight -- <b> and <i> are not deprecated in any HTML/XHTML version, include 4.01 and 1.0 Strict respectively. In XHTML 1.1 they've been moved into the Presentation Module, but that's still not deprecated or even discouraged. Paul.
