The use of "em" and "nowiki" tags is not normal here: https://fr.wiktionary.org/w/index.php?title=F%C3%A9tider&diff=prev&oldid=18811193

The <em> tags are inserted from an external paste, but you're right, we should possibly be more aggressive in downcasting them to <i> (and thus ''' in wikitext).

The <nowiki> tags are correct, because the user inserted two 's ('') not one ".
