Please give examples, I did not understand your point at all.
One example ist the debien-installer/erata page
I converted the list to a definition list as it is one semantically.
<b>Definition term here (known issue)</b><br>
It is easy to replace all <br> by <dd> and all <b> by <dt>, but it
makes more work if some files have <br /> instead as one cannot use
"change word" there, which results in extra work for those files
containing the <br /> . <dd /> would not be valid.
repeat search in vim: n
repeat action: .
This still works on multiple files, if edited with */devel/debian-
instealler/errata.wml eg. one action forward through all files, next
backwords, next forward... until done. build, review and validate,
This is quite fast and I edited a lot of files (2000?, more?) this
way always having to spend more time, if these <br /> and other xhtml
tags where there in one of the files.
I think all languages should have the same markup beside a few
language specific things.
