Re:Re:Re:Re:Dynamic Display Model

Posted on May 10 2002 by David Carter-Tod in reponse to Re:Re:Re:Dynamic Display Model

I haven't used Docbook, so I can't speak to that, but XHTML is meant to be used in semantically meaningful ways, i.e. <h1> is meant to mean a level one heading, and not indicate anything about the display. <strong is meant to indicate emphasis not the display. That it's frequently interpreted as bold is beside the point and CSS allows you to redefine the display at any point.

Generally speaking CSS allows you to simplify the HTML used because you're not using it for display any more.
