No, the parsing section defines how font elements need to be parsed and 
the rendering section defines how to render them.

In the parsing section, search for "font" to see where the start and end 
tags for the font element, and the element itself, is handled throughout 
the tree construction phase.

In the fonts and colous rendering section, see the paragraphs beginning 
with "When a font element..."
