+   <p>Notice the use of <code><a href="#the-footer-element">footer</a></code> to give the information
+   each comment (such as who wrote it and when): the
+   <code><a href="#the-footer-element">footer</a></code> element <em>can</em> appear at the start of its
+   section when appropriate, such as in this case. (Using
+   <code><a href="#the-header-element">header</a></code> in this case wouldn't be wrong either; it's
+   mostly a matter of authoring preference.)</p>
