Formally speaking, mixed content can always be removed by wrapping
the #PCDATA into a "span" element.  The result is verbose, but
will work as both HTML and XML:

<p><span>This is no longer </span><i>mixed</i><span> content</span></p>

Similar tricks can be placed with any document type permitted
mixed content.
