Search Engine Friendly

What exactly is friendly?

Since SEs are just HTML readers that are trying to think like a user, that means SE friendly is two things, and only two things:

HTML-friendly
User-friendly

You're over half-way there and will save all of us SEO people time (and yourself money) if you just:

1. validate your code against the W3C standard (totally free)
2. write your pages with the user's enjoyment and purpose in being there in mind.

Sure, SEO has a lot more involved in it than that, but you'd be surprised how often people arrive (saying they've tried everything) with absolutely botched code and text that looks like someone typed it straight out of a keyword analysis tool (or no text at all!), expecting a magic cure.
