comment Is there a drawback in defining multiple small DRY classes, instead of bigger more repetitive classes?
Your classes should describe the element, not the formatting.

comment Should I use non-standard tags in a HTML page for highlighting words?
@hemp — The specification describes the content model of each element at the point where that element is defined. The content model describes what may be allowed. Since elements which do not appear in the specification cannot be included in a content model, they are invalid.

comment Should I use non-standard tags in a HTML page for highlighting words?
From the specification: Unlike previous versions of the HTML specification, this specification defines in some detail the required processing for invalid documents as well as valid documents. However, even though the processing of invalid content is in most cases well-defined, conformance requirements for documents are still important

comment Should I use non-standard tags in a HTML page for highlighting words?
@hemp — Describing how to handle error conditions (and cope with code written for versions of HTML+n) does not make code which triggers error conditions valid.

comment Should I use non-standard tags in a HTML page for highlighting words?
It isn't legal. The specification defines what elements are allowed. The ability of browsers to recover from author errors doesn't not make author errors right.

+1 on the Just Do It. At the beginning of the year I made a decision that if I had an evening in then I would spend some time on a project. Some nights I spend 5 minutes, some I spend 2 hours. I made more progress in January then the entire previous year.

I refer you to my previous comment. Everything it says is provided by packages and not provided my plain tarballs.
