If the methods are A. Click the B and I buttons, or press Ctrl+B and Ctrl+I. B. Select Bold and Emphasis from the Character Catalog. C: Create special character formats with meta-information (purpose or meaning).
then I use C, although it may appear sometimes that I'm using B. While my brain was recovering from a bad sector, I named a character format "Bold" rather than "Strong". I also have some formats that use Italic instead of Emphasis. The horror, the horror! As Andrew noted, this may result in more tags or elements. Perhaps this is a good thing, if it makes us re-examine our typographical conventions.
