Quick question, mostly about the semantics and also just general opinion, as well as any negatives, if it is a passable idea to use Ordered Lists (OL) to mark up the main post listings on a WordPress site. These listings are just the title, maybe some meta data as to when it was posted, and the short excerpt.
I like the idea of using an ordered list, as the posts ARE in order (reverse chronologically), but with it having a title, date posted, by which author and the excerpt, that it may be a little heavy for just an OL list. Personally, i prefer using the list semantics over standard divs, but that may just be me. I do wonder though what effect it would have on SEO, if any.
Not really what I was asking for. But I would like to point out, in your example, the starting OL tag should be after the IF statement, but before the WHILE statement, otherwise you will have an OL-LI pair for each news post.
Was more or less looking for opinions on if using OL in this instance would be viable. I know it is valid markup, but I am unsure of any other side-effects.
