Re: Netscape & New HTML

   Does anyone have a URL to a really good resource on the net that
   explains in nontechnical terms why semantic markup is a good thing?

Not on the Web, but at your local bookstore.  Look at Section 1.5
(pages 7-8) of
  @title     = "LaTeX: A Document Preparation System",
  @edition   = "Second",
  @author    = "Leslie Lamport",
  @publisher = "Addison-Wesley",
  @year      = 1994

It gives a simple example that illustrates the advantages of semantic
markup and incidentally illustrates why you can't do semantic markup
in SGML with a fixed collection of document types.
