To me the issue seems exceedingly simple -- either you use a WYSIWYG
editor with a nice GUI, or you code by hand. In the former case, what the
actual tags are called is completely irrelevant, a point well made by the
original poster. From the viewpoint of storage and memory consumption,
parsing speed and we who actually maintain sites in a vanilla text editor,
shorter is better. Shorter tags are a pure win.
