comment What is the best data model to represent mathematical range (in database, xml, json…)?
Good catch. "All numbers other than 0 .. 9" is not actually a range, but OP does want to represent it, and it's certainly a reasonable desire. Amended answer to address.

comment Why are people making tables with divs?
@EricKing It's fair to say that div has a purpose. But div and span don't have the very specific intended purpose that table, thead, td etc do. No one will freak out if you use misc div elements for sidebars, pull quotes, section groupings, etc.--pretty much anywhere in the document, too. Try doing that with a unenclosed thead, td, or li. Instead of "purpose-built," maybe "purpose-specific" or "with a specific intended role."

comment Why are people making tables with divs?
@HorusKol In fact, of the all the answers here, this one is most consistent with, and supportive of, your answer. I would say they mesh well.

comment Why are people making tables with divs?
IMO, it discusses the underlying question of why designers, developers, and content workers choose to use generic elements (<div> and <span>) in place of specific, purpose-built elements (e.g. <table>). It's a little more meta than just those tags, but it speaks directly to the patterns and principles of use.

comment Using NLP can we create a summary of functional specification
The vocabulary is limited, but some parts of it are also very technical / precise. So it's a "perturbable" data set. Small changes in interpretation can lead to large differences in output.
