"Common Microsyntaxes" deals with parsing strings exposed by the DOM.  
It doesn't matter how they got into the DOM (parsing text/html,  
parsing XML, scripting). "The HTML Syntax" deals with the text/html  
serialization. Since "Common Microsyntaxes" applies to operating on  
the DOM even when the text/html serialization is not involved and  
even when the text/html serialization has been involved but the DOM  
has already been built, it would be inappropriate to move the  
sections as suggested.
