the alternative is to use html tags and of course there is a limited set 
which in turn means all kind of 'class' attributes and additional css 
which might as well not be supported by an ereader device .. the same is 
true for math ... not supported by most ereaders so one ends up with 
fake math via css which looks horrible etc etc
