Tables are elements used to present tabular data, much like the one you would see in a spreadsheet. They are basically a series of columns and rows.

A table contains three sections: thead (header), tfoot (footer) and tbody (body), that should be marked up in that order. You can also use the caption tag, for better accessibility.

Formatting elements were designed to display special types of text, using tags such as strong (bold), em (italic), mark (marked), small (small), del (deleted), ins (inserted), sub (subscript), sup (superscript), abbr (abbreviation).

Here’s an example of how the theme styles all these elements:

I read on Wikipedia that you should always add the sulfurous sulfuric acid (H2SO4) to the water, rather than adding the water to the acid. Better yet, you should never mess with anything that has the word acid in its name, unless you’re working for NASA or something[1].
