The major problem I see:

1.       Why is each <article> enclosed in a separate <li> </li>? This adds verbosity and little structural information.

2.       The <article> regions have no identifying text label. When skipping through using the screen reader Region shortcut key, or a list of Regions, you get just a list of “Article”. Possibly use a aria-label or a <h3> aria-labelledby identifying text label on the <article>.

Hi all

 

Just wondering. Am I over using/overkilling the poor ARTICLE tag by doing this:

 

<h3>My list of stuff</h3>

<ul class="news-list">

                        <li>

                            <article>

                                <time class="date" datetime="2014-06-19">19/06/2014</time>

                                <h3>

                                    <a href=“#">

                                        Bla bla

                                    </a>

                                </h3>

                            </article>

                        </li>

                        <li>

                            <article>
