Hi Felix,

Ian's proposal looks useful to me. However, I have one question:

I've lost track of the "X/HTML-5/2" saga long ago and looking at the latest draft of HTML5, I'm still not sure I understand whether
HTML5 is XML or not. If I got it correctly: The DOM5-HTML can be generated from two different syntaxes: HTML5 and XHTML5. And only
XHTML5 can be processed by XML processors.

If this is correct, I can understand how to use ITS with XHTML5, but how would you implement it with HTML5?
