You've gotten lots of good responses here, but one thing I'm going to disagree with is the tank focusing on the strongest. In a proper group, the tank should only need to hit the elite/champion mob with a single high-threat attack to have aggro on him, and should then basically follow the DPS to the silver/strong mobs to get and hold aggro on each of those as the DPS focus them down. That assumes the DPS are following an established kill order (weakest to strongest, left to right for example).

In many fights, the silvers hit much harder than the elites, so a tank that tries to solo the strongest mob leaving the DPS/healer to worry about the rest is not a very good tank.
