What information is conveyed to a sighted reader by the use of both bold and italic?

Typically, I don't think it's more specific than "this has emphasis, but is different than those things that are only bold or only italic."

Do they also require bold text and also italic text? Just how many nuanced layers of meaning does anyone think is possible with type?
