I'd consider a browser buggy if it showed me the tags at all.

I suspect that dragonchild was speaking loosely when he said, "if it displayed h3 tags as bigger than h1 tags." It seems likely that he meant the content of those tags.

Neither tags, nor elements are commands or request. They are just that, structural parts of a document. They just exist, they do not act.

In other words, HTML is declarative rather than imperative. As the wikipedia entry on declarative programming languages states though:

The distinctions are never sharp; any computer language has an element of initializing a process in a computer, in order to be of any use.
So, again, the distinctions are really only useful from a technical vantage point. As far as legal arguments go, this won't buy anything.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
