Hi Matijs,

Those elements are all functions provided for the current page, and so 
they belong together and can be handled in an unordered list. I don't 
see anything speaking against that. Try viewing your layout structure by 
 turning of stylesheets and you can then probably decide with more 
confidence about how the semantic elements of the page structure should 
be displayed with (X)HTML elements.


As s simple rule i usually create the (X)HTML structure when i have a 
determined the basic layout, without applying any stylesheet. When the 
structure is correct and seems logic as applied to the content i proceed.


regards, Jens

[WSG] semantic issue

2008-06-27 Thread Matijs
Hello good people of the WSG list,

Currently I'm working on a website with a community / web 2.0-ish feel to
it. I'm having trouble deciding what tags to use for certain elements on a
page. These elements are:

- mail a friend
- vote the article up
- vote the article down
- copy I want to embed this on my own site code from an input field
- the number of times the article has been viewed
- tags associated with the article

In the design there's a kind of control panel with these options next to the
article itself. I was thinking of the good old ul but I'm not entirely
sure. The options aren't very similar in that they're part control (the
voting) and part meta information and part helping the user copy stuff.

I am curious what people's thoughts are on how to mark this up semantically.

Gr.

Matijs
