* 2.6.1. The a element
I was wondering if you could give some more examples for the specific
attributes. For example:
content:" " url(pdf-icon)
* 2.6.6. The abbr element
It seems the TITLE attribute here has a very specific content model.
Perhaps it should be specific for the ABBR element instead of reusing
the global TITLE attribute?
# The title attribute may be omitted if there is a dfn element in the
# document whose defining term is the abbreviation.
I think this sentence might need some clarification. Is it something
like the following:
<dfn title="World Wide Web Consortium">...
... so I don't have to provide a TITLE for ABBR because DFN already has
one with the same value? I don't think that makes sense...
I also wonder, as some elements have further restricted content models.
Is it expected that ABBR elements may nest? (Perhaps this should be a
more general question as it applies to some other elements in this
section as well.)
* 2.6.12. The kbd element
How can this element only be used in strictly inline-level content but
sometimes contain inline-level content. That doesn't work. If that is
changed and inline-level content is still allowed I would like to see an
example in the specification.
* 2.6.13. The sup and sub elements
Shouldn't the second example use the I element?
* 2.6.15. The q element
It looks like this has the same problem as 2.6.12. (A Q element to
contain a BLOCKQUOTE?)
The link of the CITE attribute links to the CITE element...
* 2.6.16. The cite element
Could this element get a note saying that it should not be used for
quotations. Perhaps an invalid example would help as well.
