It all started quite harmlessly. I was working on a couple new pages and realized I’d never given much thought to how I handled the occasional bold link. Now, these isn’t presentational bold. I actually wanted to use emphasis on the words that are linked. We’re talking
When you place strong emphasis on a link, do you put the
<strong>? I think I’m inconsistent.
I had been putting the the
<a> outside of the
<strong>. Like this:
My reasoning was that if you take away the link, I would still want the phrase to be emphasized.
However, Matt brought up some good points. His first was that I’m linking the phrase, not the emphasis. I can buy that. Also, he brought up the point that putting the
<strong> outside is cleaner for semantic web scraping stuff.
