There's always wikistyles--one can easily define %b%, %i%, %tt%, %code%,
etc., to at least get the styling you want (but not the HTML tags, sorry--at
least not yet).  And % is even easy to type, even on German keyboards.  :-)
We could easily come up with a cookbook of standard wikistyles: %b%, %i%,
%tt%, %u%, %big%, %small%, %cite%, etc.  Also note that combining wikistyles
would be built-in to this scheme, thus %b i% is bold italics, %big b u% 
is big bold underlined, etc.
