Here and there you see that <strong>$1</strong> is used instead of '''$1'''. I now know that they do the same, but is there a reason that this is not consistent? If there isn't, could a bot standardize them so that beginners and non-programmers are not confused and spend time changing this? At least for the MediaWiki projects?
