Emphasis or Italic?

What's the difference between:

<em>emphasis</em> and <i>italicized</i>
<strong>strong</strong> and <b>bold</b>

It seems to subtle for my browsers.
The only "difference" I've been able to find is that according to the
O'Reilly book <strong> and <emphasis> are semantic tags, while <b> and <i>
are physical, but, most browsers render them the same way (unless you've
played subtle games with CSS).

_Are_ there any browsers that render them differently?
