I think perhaps you must misunderstand me. Yes DIV and SPAN are by far the best tools for clustering content in a general application. But this is not a general application, we have pre-existing container elements (nodelets) which will not be disappearing, and so it seems it would be most effecient to refer to these than add addiotional elements.

perl -pe "s/\b;([st])/'\1/mg"

    Ah, I see I did misunderstand. My appologies

    Yes, we should definitely take advantage of labeling the existing container classes. The issue I see is popping open the source code to the page is that these container classes aren't implemented as containers. There just a few table cells here and there. Nodelets aren't even their own tables, but rather table rows in the larger table. I'd love to see something like:
    <div id="main" > <div id="node_content"> </div> <div id="node_replies"> ... </div> </div> <div id="sidebar"> <div id="nodelet_xp"> </div> <div id="nodelet_chatterbox"> </div> ... </div>
