This is a place where coding conventions can come in handy. You (or someone) sets down what techniques and structures are generally acceptable, which aren't, and (by omission) where the grey areas are.

tags should generally be avoided. If they must
be used, extreme care should be
taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
