Hi: everyone:)

I have a couple of questions.

Q.1. If i use <u></u> for underlineing, does it still work for search engine optimization? I ask because <u></u> is deprecated.

Q.2. Should i use css for the underlineing?

Q.3. Also does <i></i> carry as much weight as the <b></b> tag for optimizing pages?

Q4. Which is better <i> or <b> for optimizing keywords?

Q.5. Also, how many times can the <b></b> tag be used
on the keywords for optimizing a webpage?

Q6. Is there a limit on how many times <b></b> can be used on the keywords before spiders see it as spam?

Thank you very much for your help:)
Please answer each question:)

I don't use it because it's deprecated.

Q.2. Should i use css for the underlineing?

I do... I usually use <i> or <b> instead and style it to underline so you get a SEO boost and the underline...

Q.3. Also does <i></i> carry as much weight as the <b></b> tag for optimizing pages?

Who knows?... I would say that they are the same and may vary from algo to algo.

Q4. Which is better <i> or <b> for optimizing keywords?

Both Equally

Q.5. Also, how many times can the <b></b> tag be used
on the keywords for optimizing a webpage?

Moderation.

Q6. Is there a limit on how many times <b></b> can be used on the keywords before spiders see it as spam?

Moderation.

There is no reason not to use css for everything style related including <i>, <b> and <u> tags.

I don't use it because it's deprecated.

Why is <u></u> deprecated? I am using it on my site. Is it not good?

If something can be accomplished in css it probably should be,

[w3schools.com...]

The only style tags I have ever had problems with are cellspacing and cellpadding for tables, otherwise all style is controlled by css.
