While we disagree with its characterization of Message Styling (which is widely implemented, possibly more so than XHTML-IM ever was), we hereby announce our intent to implement XEP-0457: Message Fancying! Definitely real. Nothing to see here. xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0457.h

Also, there's no reason the two can't co-exist! Message Styling deliberately doesn't tell you how to style things, just what directives should start styling! When the user types "*Strong Emphasis*" it's easy to convert that to "*𝐒𝐭𝐫𝐨𝐧𝐠 𝐄𝐦𝐩𝐡𝐚𝐬𝐢𝐬*" and just let Message Styling be the trigger!

@huy_ngo those are mathematical symbols that look like bold letters. It was part of a joke. You probably shouldn't actually do this anywhere.
