In the section "Restrictions on content models", could I suggest that you
clarify that only a literal newline is stripped, that is, that a character
reference to a newline (e.g. &#10;) is _not_ stripped.  At least, that's the
way I read "The "in body" insertion mode" rules for <pre> and <textarea>, and
that's the way browsers appear to behave today.
