No, we didn't make them up, they're HTML tags. Look at the HTML output of previewing <big>foo</big> and you'll see it's really just <big>foo</big>

This actually suggests another possible solution (which should be another bug though) - keep <big> and <small> but render them as <span class="big/small"> (with appropriate other attributes coming from the original tag. Just for the record,so it won't get forgotten.

if i remember correctly, these buttons were used in our old (and new?) tool bar click tracking in japanese. with our other font size issues in script language, i wouldn't be surprised if this was the case for chinese, korean, etc.......

we were actually going to take these out a while back until we saw that data and decided to keep it in until another point of view (read: pleas to remove them) surfaced.
