There's an interesting discussion of this at:
Attributes vs elements = data-centric vs document-centric - it partly
depends on what you're modelling whether you use one or the other.
Generally, I'd say you should use elements for content that is visible to
the author/editor/final reader, and use attributes for metadata relating to
the content, but it really depends on what you are doing.
