Comment:
The note says: "Omitting an element's start tag does not mean the element is
not present; it is implied, but it is still there." 1.) Before the word "start
tag" should be an "optional", because in many (or all) other cases omitting
the start tag results in an element not being present even if the appropriate
end tag is present. 2.) Before the word "implied" should be an "only", because
the critical information is not that an element exist *although* it is
implied, but that an element exists even if it is *only* implied.
