pageoneresults, I honestly don't think that Google /Bing take points away for using 1996 design elements like tables and such, as long as they can read the page.
I don't either but, you don't gain any extra points either.
You can design them as beautiful /useful as you want with tables and with <H1> and <b> too.
Absolutely! But, <b> has a different semantic meaning than <strong>. And so does <i> vs <em>. With HTML5, you can have multiple <h1>s within a single document e.g. a home page for a Blog could have multiple <h1>, one for each Blog Post entry.
I think there is a lot more semantic analysis performed on documents than we really know about and/or discuss in great detail.
Hmmm, maybe I should upgrade from 3.2 one of these days.
Ya, you might want to do that. :)
