Use logical instead of physical tags

Consider using <em></em> (emphasis) instead of <i></i> (italic) and <strong></strong> instead of <b></b> (bold). Italic and bold only highlight text visually, while EM and STRONG are audibly emphasized by screenreaders.

Other examples of logical tags are the header tags (H1, H2, H3, etc.) already mentioned previously, and BLOCKQUOTE, which is used to mark up quotations.
