CSS Class Tag

edited April 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I have a CSS class called LinkDesc which I can apply to a paragraph like so...
<p class="LinkDesc">The guff goes here</p>
The problem is that I want to apply it inline to say 4 words so I hacked my own tag called <xx>...
<xx class="LinkDesc">The guff goes here</xx>
Now I know I can use <span> but <xx> works on all the browsers I tested it with so should I be satisfied with it or get all semantical about it?

    Why not just use span or div without box display?

    What Mr Do said. If you want to do something like the <xx>, that's what BBCode is for, but it would still translate it into a div or a span...

    The real question you need to ask is this: "Why NOT use semantic markup?"

    I had a character limit to stay within and <x> is less characters than <span> especially when used 14 times.
    The limit is overcome by using a variable so <span> now works.
    Thanks for the sounding-board support.
