comment What happened to HTML table tags?
Not just IE6 - the "Word HTML" markup that office uses means that if you want to send "pretty" HTML emails to Outlook you need to use Tables.

comment Does Google submit HTML forms?
The key line is: "We’ve started experiments to rewrite POST requests to GET" ;)

comment SEO Boost on launch?
Indeed, for new sites on new domains there is also the possibility of the "Google Sandbox", where the site has to prove itself for a few weeks or months before it's allowed into the higher positions...

comment How to go about unused CSS issues
@SaifBechan if you have the print styles in a separate css you can target the entire file at media="print" - some browsers won't issue the request for that until you actually attempt to print/preview the page.

comment Internal links for a website
@w3d - cheers, indeed, I prefer the NOINDEX option (which is the route I took) for exactly that reason, and the one I gave in my answer - just because you've added a NoFollow, that won't stop someone else linking to it.

comment Internal links for a website
I'm thinking more a listing of posts tagged with a term - the indexed page would contain 10 posts that are effectively duplicating one or more archive pages of content - there is no-one canonical URL for that page.

comment Is it common, or “smart”, for high-traffic sites use externally-hosted js/css frameworks?
Using a different host for your js/css/images also allows the browser to issue more parallel requests, meaning potentially faster page loads.

comment CMS or web-framework? - When to use which?
A couple of points: There are a number of WCM vendors who would dispute the fact that CMS solutions are great for "basic corporate or informational websites" - once you get into the realms of SiteCore, EPiServer, Tridion, etc, you're not looking at a basic website, but these are still CMSs. Secondly: it would be better to say "Most CMS Solutions are built on web frameworks - whether that's ASP.NET, Rails, etc.

comment Web designers back link on client sites
One point to note: If a user with a screen reader or other assistive technology views the page, it will often read out something like "Link: Graphic Design and Web Development by Acme Corp, Title: Graphic Design and Web Development by Acme Corp, URL:example.com"; - and anyone hovering their mouse over the link will also see the pop-up repeating the text.

comment Where to place privacy, legal, etc info on a website?
Certainly the EU has now brought in laws regarding the use of cookies, etc., and UK has pretty much adopted the legislation wholesale, meaning that you should get permission before storing any information on the users machine - including session cookies, etc. (ico.gov.uk/for_organisations/…)

comment Where to place privacy, legal, etc info on a website?
Whilst copyright is generally automatic, explicitly stating it, and calling out who holds the copyright is beneficial (for example in light of the Orphan Rights Bill in the UK)

comment SEO - Reducing significance of irrelevant kewords
Yeah, I'd seen a couple of posts from last year suggesting they weren't really using it too much yet, as most sites aren't using it (or are not using it correctly).

comment SEO: Navigation of Multiple Page Results
A recommendation we had suggested that using Previous/Next links wasn't always great from an SEO point of view, as it can create a hierarchy of pages (so Page 1 is the parent of Page 2, Page 2 is the parent of Page 3, etc.), and a flat list was the best (as every page was then "at the same level". The design solution we came up with to address this was to take an option like Su' and collapse all the other links into a pop-up on the "...".
