Bug: WeBuilder inserts *wrong* HTML tags for bold and italic

Postby pmk65 » Sat Jun 30, 2018 12:45 pm

When clicking the "B" or "I" icons in the HTML Formatting Toolbar, WeBuilder inserts <b></b> and <i></i> tags.
This should instead be be <strong></strong> and <em></em> tags to follow the HTML 5 specs.
Also there's 2 HTML 5 tag for strike-through: <del></del> and <s></s>. The last one also seems to be missing in WeBuilders HTML def.

Note: According to the HTML 5 specification, the <b> tag should be used as a LAST resort when no other tag is more appropriate. The HTML 5 specification states that headings should be denoted with the <h1> to <h6> tags, emphasized text should be denoted with the <em> tag, important text should be denoted with the <strong> tag, and marked/highlighted text should use the <mark> tag.
There are 10 types of people in the world: Those who understand binary and those who don't.

OK, but the specs also say that there still is a role for <i> and <b>. For example:

<p>The editors of the <i>New York Times</i> have proven on several occasions that it is not <em>they</em> who compromise the truth, but Donald Trump himself.</p>
