Blogging appears to have improved my casual use of HTML, I'm now casually using such tags as ACRONYM, ABBR, DFN, CITE and BLOCKQUOTE, and I think so much in EM and STRONG that I have difficulty not writing things like this is an <em>very</em> irritating thing, because the EM is part of my thinking. I still have problems deciding when I want EM and when I want I though... :-)

Yes, that always annoys me. The people who say "always use <em> rather than <i>" never seem to consider that you might want to use italics for something other than emphasis, for example when citing a title or marking a quoted section in some way.

I note that although you use <em> and <strong>, you're still using the physical-markup <tt> rather than the semantic <code> :-)
