Yeah, I would like to be able to understand what the list is "about",
so something like a title would give a good descriptive meaning to
what the items in the list relate to.
For instance the title could be "Favorite Films", obviously the LI's
would then be order of the favorites.
Title was one of the only attributes that I thought could be used to
determine what the list is about. I was also initially thinking about
putting a class attribute saying something like "positive" or
"negative" for the ordering of the elements in the list.
It is just that I would like to be able to write a progam that can
parse lists of information that has a meaning so that I can merge more
than one list together.
Obviously OL, LI inferes a kind of semantic meaning, and I could
already use the OL's without getting everyone to adopt a new format
such as rel=tag etc.
I am just looking into ideas and trying to see if people already do
this kind of thing.
