+  <p class="note">Someone could write a specification that defines any
+  arbitrary byte stream as conforming, and then claim that their
+  random junk is conforming. However, that does not mean that their
+  random junk actually is conforming for everyone's purposes: if
+  someone else decides that that specification does not apply to their
+  work, then they can quite legitimately say that the aforementioned
+  random junk is just that, junk, and not conforming at all. As far as
+  conformance goes, what matters in a particular community is what
+  that community <em>agrees</em> is applicable.</p>

   <hr><p>User agents must treat elements and attributes that they do not
   understand as semantically neutral; leaving them in the DOM (for DOM
   processors), and styling them according to CSS (for CSS processors),
