I will do my studies! But my emotional beef is more about seeing divs  
pop-up like it's a division party, and that sorta gets me roughed  
up... But again, I'm no authority on the subject.... you are. Seeing  
as you're someone I truly hold in hight regard, it would be great to  
know your thoughts on my usage of the definition lists for marking up  
a label => value set of data such as the adr and/or offer a cure for  
divitus and spanitis.

Beginning to end? Harsh a bit no? Ok... Will do!

I read that, I find the word "semantic" ambiguous in some contexts,  
just as "tabular data" may be ambiguous to some.
