+   <p>For example, if a user agent called "Pleas<!--e h-->old" were to
+   add an event to indicate when the user is going up in an elevator,
+   it could use the prefix "<code title="">pleasold</code>" and thus

   <p>All extensions must be defined so that the use of extensions
   neither contradicts nor causes the non-conformance of functionality
   defined in the specification.</p> <!-- thanks to QA Framework -->
