In order of appearance (I did not mark up text nodes):

       <video><source /></video>A
       <video><source />A</video>B
       <video><source />AB</video>C
       <video><source />A</video>C
       <video><source /><source />A</video>B

The above describes the DOM already implemented in Safari and Firefox 3.6beta, 
as can be verified in this live DOM viewer demo:

These 4  should be conforming.


This 1 example should NOT be conforming.

Is this a validation detection question? Or is it a user agent parsing
