Partial patch (af, en, et, eu, fur, fy, ga, ia, la, ms, oc, sc, su)
<strong> and <em> should be preferred over ''' and '' in the language files,
where they're semantically correct. They make the interface more accessible.
''' and '' may as well be preferred over <b> and <i>.
The patch improves the situation, replacing <b> and <i> with <strong>/<em> or
'''/'' as appropriate, and also switching some ''' and '' to <strong> and <em>
where appropriate. There are still a number of languages that use <b> and <i>.
I get some errors when I try to use this patch. Can you please check it?
No patch. If this really needs fixing, start with correcting English messages first.
