Maybe it is not a bug, in itself, but it is a real problem wit i18n.
And I don't think "plain text" is the solution either, but simpler markup 
would be much appreciated: simple tags are not a problem, but the complex 
style attributes are hard to look through when translating.

They pose also accessibility problems, I'd say, since the style requires a 
certain font at a certain size...
