Yes, although qualified with "this generally means..." and "most clients
should recognize this as..." As I recall, there were always differences
between how browsers interpreted these. But I suppose if everyone
implementing HTML support in Jabber clients is cribbing from this
particular document, they'll all interpret these tags the same way :-)
Bold and italic are nice, but this still leaves open the issue of fonts,
point sizes and colors. Otherwise it's a flashback to 1993 and Mosaic
At this point I'm planning to use <em> and <strong> but also use <u> and
<font> as necessary. (And I'll parse <b> and <i> if I receive 'em.)
Cellphones can just ignore them.
