Hi, I was just wondering if anyone could give me an explanation of what
the difference between "structural" and "presentational" elements is.
thanks a lot.

I would it explain as follows:
- Anything for the sole purpose of influancing the looks of the content =
is  =

a presentational element; For example (tags) <b>, <i> and <u>.
- All the rest is structural, although in graphical browsers they do  =

influance the looks too; For example (tags) <strong> and <em>.

The structural elements do what the phrase suggests: they provide  =

structure. They are (in a way) semantic. A paragraph being a paragraph, =
a  =

list being a list, a heading being a heading.
