I is used to indicate that the enclosed text must be rendered in a italic (slanted) typeface. It must be rendered distinct from B-bold text.
You should use EM or CITE instead of I if you can. While they usually produce the same output, the I tag does not provide any reasons why the enclosed text is in italics. This means an indexer or text-only browser cannot pick a good alternative. With EM and CITE this is possible. The browser can now distinguish between emphasized text and citations and choose different methods to display them.
