comment Structured data and visible content revisited
Mainly, yes. I work in SEO and marketing and so while I'd consider other potential uses that would definitely be my primary concern.

comment Phone number in meta description bad or good for local rankings NAP
I don't trust that Google fully discloses all ranking factors but 'meta' tags, by definition, aren't on-page content and could easily be used deceptively (e.g. meta keywords) and all the info out there seem to focus on CTR (by humans--which is more important) not ranking (by bots). I used to believe it was a ranking factor, and with 500+ algorithm changes a year, who's to say it isn't? The way I'd approach it is by adding meta descriptions with a phone number to half of my pages (but give equal attention to optimizing the other half) and then see what the results are based on analytics :)

Can you point me to a Google resource that says they use it as a ranking factor? Not CTR, not 'useful snippet,' but something where they say it is indeed a ranking factor?

comment Cannot solve errors on W3C validator
Then that is a problem with the other current code. Leave the closing div in an run the validator again to see what it says is invalid this time. I find Firefox's 'view source' feature awesome for this as any weirdness get highlighted in bold red text. Also if you use a text editor or IDE that supports live linting it can help debug as well.

Same concepts would apply to the authors.
