Screenhots (<table/> currently is used here) for example are kind of a
listing. Even more, they are a list with a label for each screenshot.
Right? Well, then, I could imagine something like this:

  <dl id="Screenshots">
    <dt><label for="s_locationbar">The location bar:</label></dt>
    <dd><img id="s_locationbar" src="path/to/screenshot_thumb.png"
        alt="Screenshot: Location bar"/></dd>
    <dt><label for="s_pathbar">The path bar:</label></dt>
    <dd><img id="s_pathbar" src="path/to/screenshot1_thumb.png"
        alt="Screenshot: Path bar"/></dd>

This at least wraps the table into more descriptive elements than
<table/> or <div/>.

7. Personally, I absolutely dislike colons in headers (like "Status:").
   This of course is nothing more than a cosmetic topic and, well, then
   it comes down to personal taste.
