Not To Emphasis a Point Irrelevant To the Hint, But...
Authored by: llscotts on Aug 30, '06 03:34:02PM

There seems to be some disagreement over the assertion I made about <STRONG> being "correct". Just so you know I didn't make that up, check out the w3c accessibility guidelines on this subject. I'm sure that my sensitivity and technical training in web accessibility issues is where I got the impression that <STRONG> is preferable to <B> these days.

In any case, it's irrelevant to the hint, though obviously someone at Apple should decide if adhering to web accessibility standards is the more important factor in deciding how to translate a boldface font tag. I don't honestly have a strong opinion myself and can see both sides of the debate. I thought the issue had been decided by w3c's position, but perhaps it's still subject to debate.

Cheers,
Leland
