           Summary: Remove references to Microdata from within the
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac System 9.x
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5: The Markup Language (editor: Michael(tm) Smith)
        AssignedTo: mike@w3.org

Recent additions to the The Markup Language Reference have added references to
Microdata Property Values. Yet this document is a non-normative guide specific
to the HTML5 specification, only:

It is intended to complement the normative conformance criteria defined in the
HTML5: A vocabulary and associated APIs for HTML and XHTML  specification

Microdata is a separate document, as is the HTML+RDFa document. Neither should
be referenced in this guide, if it is intended to complement the actual HTML5
primary document, only. Adding such references will only confuse the reader,
because they will be expecting to find complimentary references within the
HTML5 document to match the Microdata references in the non-normative HTML
reference, but they won't exist because Microdata is managed in a separate

References to Microdata should be removed. The material can be added, instead,
to the Microdata documents.
