proposed change to dialog example in HTML5 section 4.6.26

From: Gregory J. Rosmaita <oedipus@hicom.net>

To: public-html@w3.org, wai-xtech@w3.org
Message-Id: <20081203195035.M99454@hicom.net>

the dialog example in section 4.6.26 of the 3 december 2008 version of 
the html5 draft should use ABBR not SPAN to gloss the colloquial 
pronunciation and should use EmotionML to express that the shopkeeper 
is lying, rather than using SPAN to "convey" such information:

<!-- extant -->
<dialog>
<dt>Customer
<dd>Hello! I wish to register a complaint...  Hello?  Miss?
<dt>Shopkeeper
<dd><span title="Colloquial pronunciation of 'What do you'"
>Watcha</span> mean, Miss?
<dt>Customer
<dd>Uh, I'm sorry, I have a cold
<dd>Sorry, <span title="This is, of course, a lie">we're closing 
for lunch</span>
</dialog>
<!-- end extant example -->

<!-- begin proposed example -->
<dialogue>
<dt>Customer</dt>
<dd>Hello! I wish to register a complaint...  Hello?  Miss?</dd>
<dt>Shopkeeper</dt>
<dd><abbr title="What do you">Watcha</abbr> mean, Miss?</dd>
<dt>Customer</dt>
<dd>Uh, I'm sorry, I have a cold</dd>
<dd>Sorry, <emotionml xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2008/11/emotionml">
<emotion><category set="everydayEmotions" name="lie"/>
we're closing for lunch</emotion></emotionml></dd>
</dialogue>
<!-- end proposed example -->
