Hi Eli,

Thanks for your comments, they're very helpful. I'll link to the  
articles you suggest.

Quoting Eli Cochran <eli at media.berkeley.edu>:

I tried to reflect this approach in my markup examples. You'll notice  
that even in the cases where HTML's semantic markup is insufficient,  
I've used good semantic tags such as lists to structure menus and  
tabs. But this should probably be made more explicit within the  
checklist itself.

The larger issue of structuring a document in a meaningful way  
independent of the visual presentation is noteworthy as well. I'll see  
how I can fit it in.

Thanks again for your advice,
