in reply to My favorite HTML font style tag is...

Hmmm, this poll's about as relevant as asking what my favorite air molecule is. And, <font> isn't even html!

All of those tags can be changed through CSS (and should be, to suit your document).

What is the question? What is your favorite structural markup? What is your favorite display markup?

I like <p> because it structurally defines a paragraph? I like <i> because it suggests displaying in italics?

<b style="font-weight: normal; font-style: italic">This is bold</b> <i style="font-weight: bold; font-style: normal;">This is italic</i>

Update: ty ChemBoy - Ok, it's valid, but deprecated and not recommended :)

Update 2: since my other reply is nested deeply, let me link to CSS Zen Garden here too.

[1nickt]: pryrt I am creating a Type to check valid user IDs, which must be a whole number greater than or equal to zero. I would like to disallow 1.0 but because of this behaviour, by the time it is checked by the constraint, it *is* an Int.
[LanX]: should this be considered? Re: Parsing .txt into arrays
[LanX]: and this Re^4: Hash user input
[pryrt]: LanX, I would vote "keep" if it were considered: it's not helpful, but it could be taken multiple ways, not all of which are offenseive...
[pryrt]: 1nickt: if you are checking for valid user IDs, then I wouldn't care about the difference between 1.0 and 1: I would take either as a valid representation of the integer user ID#1
[LanX]: and this Re^2: extract column data
