Thank you for the clarification, that makes sense to me.

Hi Jon,

the spec[1] restricts ancestors not children:

"Where Flow content is expected, but with no article, aside, footer, header or nav element ancestors."

so <maincontent> can contain any of the above elements, but cannot be contained within those elements.

Steve,

Thank you for developing this HTML5 extension for main content.

Is this specification also dependent on changing the types of content that can be in a article.

I noticed that the extension says that an ARTICLE element cannot be a child of MAINCONTENT element.

That may be quite restrictive to authors who may be using the ARTICLE element as a way to separate stories or if the main content is a blog.

I can see restricting other elements like ASIDE, FOOTER, HEADER or NAV elements.

What was the purpose of trying to exclude ARTICLE element as a child?

Jon
