Armor on seals isn't exactly what I'd get as a tank.
You are a tank, you will already get armor from items, so get dodge instead! (Just like crit and damage scale best together, dodge and armor do)
With Nasus get armor pen on marks, with rammus/more get magic pen.
If you want to play really defensively (which I wouldn't recommend) get armor or HP/lvl on marks

I often play Alistar.
Quintessence Health, Seals Health/lvl, Marks Magicressist. Glyphs Magicressist/lvl.

IMO its the best choice.

i often play shen. i aint sure about marks too, but most of the time i go with magic penetration, cause in early game i can harass nicely with spamming my blade.

according to my super duper spreadsheet, the best mark for a tank late game is the health per level mark - "greater mark of vitality".

however, they are very expensive to buy, and nowhere near as cost effective as an offensive mark, such as attack speed, armor penetration, magic penetration, or critical chance.

flat armor or flat magic resist are also ok as a mark, but only give you about ~120g worth of stats. flat health gives you ~80g (compared to 400g worth of dps stats)

dude the thing is on a guy like rammus u dont wanna have any dodge at all... u want them to hit u so why combo it with dodge? :S i dont know if u run dodge masteries... if u do.. dont
xD

and for ur main question, marks doesnt really make any big differance but my best bet since u are a rammus player would be | Attack speed or Armor | the reason is that rammus is very dependant on the early farm he gets in lane/jungle and the attack speed really helps u recover if u miss a few lasthits.. but if u feel like u are pro at lasthitting for with 0.91 armor marks
u could also make an off page for dealing with casters where u take MR but tbh i dont hid this very usefull after lvl 5..
