Namaste, Mukul ji.
I'm a fast typist, but otherwise, only a philosopher and clown.
HTML is structured by definition. The POV of the
unstructured search engine varies tag by tag, node
The content of text nodes inside hs, ths, etc, make a lot
of difference to an 'unstructured' search engine, or at
least in the lion, gazelle and hunter model, those are
the easiest lions to pick off before diving into the ps
and the attributes of imgs. Then there are the URIs
themselves, but these can be controversial in some hunts.
The metas are gold if used well, but otherwise, just
annotations. The more the author annotates, the
easier it is to clarify intent but not necessarily to
establish truth. For that reason, unstructured
search systems are problematic the more a decision
relies on them in real time or in a quantum field
(the problem of a particle in superposition).

I am not as knowleadgeable as you are. But IMHO
1) HTML is a language for displaying content of the
web page. As for any content, HTML can be treated as
2) On the other hand, I think, since HTML is a
vocabulary for Web GUI, it can be treated as
3) Since HTML is also a computer language, it can be
treated as such by many people.
4) To my experiance, relational data can be treated
as structured information since relational data is
handled by SQL.
Just my opinion!
