Fair enough. But in that case, I think perhaps the spec could do with
a bit of rewording for the <small> element.
The current wording:
> "Small print typically features disclaimers, caveats, legal
> restrictions, or copyrights. Small print is also sometimes used for
> attribution, or for satisfying licensing requirements."
...sounds like an *exact* fit for Remy's use case:
> So I'm making a list of disclaimers for my site:
> <li>You must agree to this term</li>
> <li>And this term too</li>
> <li>And don't break this term</li>
> <li>And don't forget the milk</li>
> <p>By reading this, you're agreeing to xyz</p>
Does anyone have any ideas on a rewording of the definition of the
<small> element to make it clear that it is only intended for certain
instances but not others?
Alternatively, does anyone else think the <small> element should be
capable of wrapping inline and block elements? (raises hand)
