Ah, you mean classes that can be used in multiple pages, and use
advanced fields as an example. Gotcha.

You could use that trick in conjunction with <li>s -- the issue is if you
want them rendered as list items when no CSS style is available. I think
that screen readers would appreciate it, and that generally speaking
it's the "right thing to do", but I'm not sure and would appreciate
third-party comments here.

But I miss the <h1-hn> tags which provide us with actual page structure.
Did you not use them?

The example is interesting, thanks for it.
