Hi, >From my understanding of it both are fine and should validate with the w3c standards, personally i would go with a, because it just seems clearer to me, also from the point of view of search engines, they will see that the link is a heading because it will read the heading first. I might be completely wrong, but thats my 2c as long as you dont do <h2><a href="url>heading</h2></a> then it doesnt really matter i dont think. of course if you are using css then you might want to build a style that you can build into the link, <a href="url" class="HL2">heading</a> that way, your style HL2, short for header link 2 can be different from unlined headers should you wish it to be. ps, i think you can use css and class' like that. hope this helps Kipper -------------------------------------------------- From: "Nadeem Hosenbokus" <nadeem at multigraphics.biz> Sent: Tuesday, August 19, 2008 12:18 PM To: <thelist at lists.evolt.org> Subject: [thelist] A (simple?)
