Oft argued again [webmasterworld.com] and again [google.com] . . .
I'll give jabz a little credit though, one of the ideas of XHTML was to lend context to the content by extending HTML. Example: <movie>Titanic</movie> as opposed to <shipname>Titanic</shipnname> (when paired with a working custom DDT.) So while it's not true that "strong" is XHTML, it does give the content a semantic context over the letter "b" - in the spirit of XHTML. It's a Ford vs. Chevy, Mac vs. Windows, men vs. women debate.
