I agree with some of which you have pointed out and this is actually in the works for the theme update im working on here: http://area51.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=108&t=35613
<u> currently is not used its a span with underline applied through styles
strike is not a default bbcode
as for the spans for altering the font size and color i agree they should be divs
however making everything divs is not a smart approach since everything would thus have to rendered as a div since the user can apply bbcodes in any manner they wish you could end up with something like
- Code: Select all
this would get extremely intensive with divs and thats not a good thing, we can only accommodate users to a certain point when it comes to semantics with the post editor.
As for the lists there is an value for what type you can do [list=1] for number or [list=a] for lowercase alpha etc... this currently applies it in a rediculous manner but in the update im working on applies the correct style to the ul.
the alt tag is a good idea i think it could be usefull especially for blind users
