I assume that <b> becoming <strong> is a similar deprecation?

Sorry, I wasn't clear. (I meant I try to use tags that indicate how to
display, like bold/underline/size, rather than more abstract tags that
indicate <sarcasm> or <sponsored> where it's not clear to me how that
should be indicated visually. I think <code> means <monospaced> (which
used to be <tt> but is now <kbd> apparently?)

But it's moot because you have a stylesheet, so you can define a new
<fruitbasket> tag and have it display exactly how you want to. :)

I've checked in the <code> tags and typo fixes in index.html, working on
the next batch now. (I'm peeling off some smaller commits before
changing the headers and introducing the stylesheets.)

I can fix it up, just making sure there wasn't a reason I didn't
understand. :)
