I do not recommend using SeaMonkey to compose web pages unless the user is proficient in HTML. After I have roughed in the text and structure of a web page and its text using SeaMonkey, I "clean up" and tweak the HTML code directly by using an ordinary text editor such as
(I am not happy that that HTML tags are being deprecated. Some tags keep HTML simple. What's wrong with simple? "If it isn't broke, don't fix it." KISS — "Keep it simple, stupid." The designers of HTML 5 seem to believe dogmatically that syntax [text] and presentational style are separate with no middle ground. For example, they ignore the
long-establishedconventions that the names of books and ships are italicized in standard written English. I call this a "syntactical style," a middle ground.
(HTML 5 seems to be moving away from being a
hyper-textmarkup language to becoming a hyper-presentationalmarkup language. What do businesses seem to want? To present non-verbalexperiences. What do academics, for example, want? To display and easily disseminate text [also with a full panoply of multimedia], which has been the mainstay of conveying information. Let us users choose whether and when we want to use web pages to convey information and whether and when we want web pages to be non-verbalexperiences.)
