[Bug 13301] New: The u element represents "an unarticulated non-textual annotation." Are you serious? I think it would be good to give that one another try, this time in English. And is marking up Chinese names the only example you could find? It seems you want people

           Summary: The u element represents "an unarticulated non-textual
                    annotation."  Are you serious?  I think it would be
                    good to give that one another try, this time in
                    English.  And is marking up Chinese names the only
                    example you could find?  It seems you want people

Comment:
The u element represents "an unarticulated non-textual annotation."  Are you
serious?  I think it would be good to give that one another try, this time in
English.  And is marking up Chinese names the only example you could find?  It
seems you want people to stop using this element.  Or to ignore this
unfathomable explanation and continue to think of u as underline.  (Sorry to
be so harsh; I'm just stunned by the unhelpfulness of this explanation.)
