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.

Or:

C: Create special character formats that indicate the purpose or meaning
of the text (rather than their intended appearance) and apply them.
