Comment:
Hello,
I read in the specifics that the <tt> tag was erased, probably due to the fact
it is not short for a semantic label but is related to the graphical
rendering.

I think it is the only way to correctly markup an inline code, such as <pre>
and <code> tags do in a block element.

Citing an inline string of code is not only needful, but somewhat a good
article, guide or e-book cannot avoid in a clear documentation.
It should be useful to have an inline code tag, re-enabling the <tt> one or
defining a new one like it.

Best regards and thanks for your great work, which developers (and users, too)
will appreciate a lot.

P.S.: What everyone fears is only MS not respecting these standards another
time! :)
