This is ONLY a rule of thumb. If you think of elements
as having content and attributes for metadata about
the element itself or it's content, that is a rule
of thumb. Attributes are structure poor.
The exceptions are legendary. As Robin
says, the technical advantages or one or the other
are "covered" on his page.
