[WSG] breaks, lists in a form or not, and more or less divs

2009-12-06 Thread Frances de Waal

Hi there,

May I ask your opinion about some semantic/HTML basics?

In case of a poem, if I place every verse in a paragraph, what do I do  
with each line of text in the verse? Is this one of the very few  
occasions to use breaks? A verse doesn't seem a list to me... or is  
it? I like your opinion.


In the very few tutorials I have seen about how to markup a form  
semantically, both were using  a list in the form. To me that seems  
totally unneccessary plus too much markup. Does anyone know what can  
be the reason of doing it that way?


InContextEditing, the online CMS from Adobe, needs a extra div for  
every editable region. This makes me avoiding the tool. Some keep  
saying that extra divs don't make any difference to a page at all. I  
agree they have no meaning semantically, but they do create extra code  
which is not neccessary for the content. But then again, we don't talk  
about 100 divs here. So, besides of best practice, is there any place  
where the extra divs may have bad influence?

   I would use pre:

A stately pleasure-dome decree:
Where Alph, the sacred river, ran
Through caverns measureless to man
Down to a sunless sea.

Re: [WSG] breaks, lists in a form or not, and more or less divs

 each line of text in the verse? Is this one of the very few occasions to use
 breaks? A verse doesn't seem a list to me... or is it? I like your opinion.


This one has been debated a few times and it seems to come down to two
common suggestions; paragraphs + breaks, or pre. I think both are fine,
although I prefer paragraphs and breaks unless the poem has particularly
significant formatting which requires pre.

So, in order of preference...

p
First line of poembr /
Middle line of poembr /
Last line of poem/p

Semantically fine, since the meaning relies on line breaks and I'm happy to
consider each verse as a paragraph.

Or..

pre
The author put this line over here
  but this one here
this one way over here
  ...and the form and layout is part of the poem's message
/pre

(hopefully that whitespace will survive ;)). Semantically ok as the content
is preformatted. It's not strong semantics but there's not much else to
work with and it gets the job done.



 In the very few tutorials I have seen about how to markup a form
 semantically, both were using  a list in the form. To me that seems totally
 unneccessary plus too much markup. Does anyone know what can be the reason
 of doing it that way?


Some people feel that each line of the form is the next step in a list of
items to be filled out, and also to make the grouping clear; others are
simply being pragmatic about the need for something to work with for style.
I'm sure there will be other reasons too. It's not required, but I don't
think it's a bad technique.

Personally I'm quite comfortable putting each line of a form into a div (for
complex forms you need *something*); but I tend to use fieldset+legend to
ensure the grouping is obvious.

Hope that helps :)

cheers,
Ben
