Comment:
Paragraph: Within 'The "in body" insertion mode' the paragraph 'A start tag
whose tag name is "xmp"'. 

This paragraph causes browser to always handle an xmp tag with a p tag as
ending the p tag involved. In default xmp is a block element and this is no
problem. But when using 'display: inline' this specification will cause the
first xmp tag in the p tag area to end the paragraph it is in. Subsequent xmp
tags within this p area do not end any p tag. 

The question is whether this rule should take this into account so that xmp
defined as inline will show up proper inline. Example code where the problem
occurs:

<p> This short code <xmp class="shortcode"><form></form></xmp> will break up
the paragraph, but this code <xmp class="shortcode"><form></form></xmp> will
not  break up the paragraph, neither will the following code: <xmp
class="shortcode"><p></p></xmp>. Should the specification be adjusted?
</p>

The question is whether this should be remedied in the specification.
