What's the minimum number of HTML tags you need?

Does HTML follow Pareto's Law?

I am starting to believe that learning and using HTML are two different things. It's common to find HTML cheat sheets with every known tag. What? maybe 100?

Q1. What's the minimum number of HTML tags you need?

Q2. Does HTML follow the 80/20 rule?

Do you think 80% of all websites use these ten tags?

Tag Name
<h1> - <h6> Heading
<p> Paragraph
<em> Italic / Emphasis
<strong> Bold / Strong
<a> Anchor
<ul> & <li> Lists
<blockquote> Blockquote
<hr> Horizontal Rule
<img> Image
<div> Division

LOL,
YES, H4-H6 are smaller than regular text many times.
Agree: <ol> is needed.
