[uf-discuss] Best way to format a FAQ

I know there has been some discussion of FAQs
recently but I have only a little context so forgive
I had to create a FAQ for something today.
I used the following format:
<div class="faq" id="faq1">
<h1><a href="http://example.com/subject/">FAQ Title</a></h1>
<li><a href="#faq1-1">Is this the most asked question?</a></li>
<dt id="faq1-1-q"><a href="#faq1-1" id="faq1-1">Is this the most
<dd id="faq1-1-a-1">Yes, this is the most asked question.</dd>
I had to throw this together quickly, so it may not
be so great, but I thought I would share and see
what the HTML gurus here think. How do others
here format a FAQ?
Of course I am not proposing this as a uf. This is
just one example. That said, I tend to think that
all the FAQs online contain a lot of meaning that
is needlessly lost on machines:
- This is a question.
- This is an answer.
- This is the answer to that question.
- These questions are frequently asked.
- This question is asked more/less frequently
than that question.
- These questions are all related .
- These questions are about X.
Is a QA pair plus a subject a sort of triple?
I imagine a Web-wide FAQ search that gives the
illusion of an expert system. Of course, I have a
wild imagination - rampant even :)
I am just dreaming out loud. So busy lately...
