Change default <b> and <i> to <strong> and <em>

People around there doesn't understand the real meaning of <strong> and <em> and are using them indiscriminately for formatting, enforcing loudly that in this way they are XHTML aware.
They are also accusing us to use the good and old <b> and <i> "formatting" tags for "formatting", instead of the new and fashionable <strong> and <em> "semantic" tags (even if those are available in the Styles combo anyway).
So, to shut up the general mass opinion, it seems that it would be better for us to configure the editor to produce <strong> and <em> by default, removing those entries from the Styles combo.
At this point, we should also think about the following tags, which are produced by default with the "formatting" buttons:
- <u> : change to <span style="text-decoration: underline;">
- <strike> : change to <span style="text-decoration: line-through;"> (or <del>?)
We can use the powerful features of FCKeditor to easily configure it to produce the above tags. But... does all that makes sense? Would anyone get angry with us because of it?
