Is <i> and <b> inside metadata possible?
Lets say I'm inserting a Book Blurb into the metadata in the content.OPF file
<dc:description>This is the Blurb for my book, It's a really really nice looking blurb, which has some quote and stuff in it, which I want to make <i>italic</i> and maybe have some <b>Bold</b> in there as well... </dc:description>
content.opf(15): unknown element "i" from namespace "http://www.idpf.org/2007/opf"
So does anybody know of a way to get the result I'm after???

In order to get it to pass validation, you'd have to add an html namespace declaration somewhere and write the tags as <html:i>.
I'm not sure it would display in any meaningful manner, and there's always the possibility that a reader app might balk at opening the ePub if it thinks the metadata's wonky.

That's the best option.
The metadata is specifically designed to be machine, not human readable. Don't add complexity where it's not useful (and might mess things up)!
