Touché, Jason. Touché.

Personally, I do find it much more important that a dot that will never net or lose you a single pageview. In contrast, a simple list item instead of a paragraph with a SPAN inside it means marginally higher text/markup ration which *could* marginally impact your SR placement, which *may* someday net you an extra visitor.

This is a negligible difference obviously and should come down to other factors, like the context of the website. But all things being equal... I'm just saying too ;-)
