align="right" is the same as float:right; in CSS.  The only reason 
people ever need to use align="right" (or class="right", as I see quite 
often these days) is when they don't think about semantics and, 
therefore, have no other way of identifying which content they want to 
present nor why they want it presented in that way.

What for?  Most, if not all, modern GUI browsers render <s> and <del> in 
the same way.  What's the point in using <s>?

Actually, I see it used quite often, along with <ins>, particularly when 
authors edit blog entries.
