Once I got a look at the markup of my latest Vitamin piece, “Stand Up For Your Rights!“, I winced. Four paragraphs, with each alternating bit of dialogue separated by a line break? Ay caramba!
And yet, I’m not sure I could have done better, structurally speaking. The only semi-reasonable alternative that comes to mind is a set of four blockquotes with paragraphs instead of line breaks, but that doesn’t work for me. They are, after all, invented conversations. I’m not quoting anything.
Maybe paragraphed text with a div, possibly classed, for each section (yes, all right, each division) of the article would have been a better choice. Or maybe not. What do you think?
