point the user makes something wrong and you want to throw an error
("Your email's not valid (MX-Record not set.)") or an information ("You
have logged in successfully.").
Know I do this using <div id="error"> or <div id="info"> analogically.
As errors or other direct responses to user interaction are not the same
as some different text, I think there should be a possibility to mark
them up appropriately.
I first searched in the Spec for some existing elements for output, but
only found <samp> which is for sample output only.
I don't quite know which element name to use best, maybe:
<output error> / <output info(rmation)>
<output type="error"> / <output type="info(rmation)">
(The question is, what is <output>, error or info?)
What do you think?
