I don't know DITA but <emphasis role="bold"> is not the equivalent of 
<b> in HTML. DocBook has no equivalent of <b> in HTML. The equivalent of 
<emphasis role="bold"> in HTML is <em style="font-weight: bold;

MS OOXML likely attempts to match the presentation based semantics of 
Word. It is not at all like DocBook. I suspect ODF is similar in that
