> 9.63. <tt>
> This element is directly rendered as its HTML counterpart.
> Use appropriate elements or CSS instead.
> Where the tt element would have been used for marking up keyboard input, consider the kbd element; for variables, consider the var element; for computer code, consider the code element; and for computer output, consider the samp element.
> Similarly, if the big element is being used to denote a heading, consider using the h1 element; if it is being used for marking up important passages, consider the strong element; and if it is being used for highlighting text for reference purposes, consider the mark element.

So that's a requirement to produce invalid HTML...
