For the first time, the last SimpleQuiz had over 100 comments. Wow. And once again, “lists” prove that they are the most easily debated when talking about semantic markup.
For example, you could have done this:
<h2>First Step Title</h2>
<p>First step description goes here.</p>
Many agreed that using
<hn>s and paragraphs would be a nice way of showing the relationship between the step title and step description, while still using an ordered list. Another variation that seemed popular was the nesting of a single definition list within each list item:
<dt>First Step Title</dt>
<dd>First step description goes here.</dd>
While it may seem a bit weird to have a series of one-item lists — I’m never one to argue that a list can’t contain just one item.
If I could afford it, T-shirts would’ve also been handed out to (among others) Tantek, for his organized analysis that I could’ve copied verbatim as the conclusion — and also to Chris Schreib (1,2,3) for perhaps the longest comment in the history of long comments :-).
Thanks to all that commented on this one, and for (as usual) providing a fascinating discussion.
