* because using <em> or <strong> has a special meaning which we dont intend to
trigger and <i> is going towards deprecation because CSS should be used.
* because replacing markup causees a selector like
$(context).find("span.allpagesredirect") or CSS "span.allpagesredirect {
color:green }" will no longer work if the element gets a different tagname.
* because using CSS is what Wikipedia has done for years and what people are
copying to their websites.

And about text/non-text browsers... can you elaborate on that ? I'm now sure I
follow, MediaWiki currently supports down to IE6. Anything older is not fully
supported and failure or degration will occur in places.
