I am acutely aware of your concerns, however, I only wrote the  
article itself.  I was not in charge of designing the template for  
the Tips pages.

I am copying the QA list on this email as you are not the first to  
notice this.  I had originally hoped to "guilt" those in charge into  
fixing up the template and making it more semantic, but so far it  
seems I've had no luck ;)
