  == Summary ==
  
- [R025] ...
+ [R025] Methods must exist to allow to distinguish in a document the element that are "inline" (i.e. part of a mixed content) and the ones that are not.

+ '''[YS]- Andrzej, because we want to move forward quickly on this topic, and we were not sure if you would have the time to work on it, I've taken the action item to get it started. Obviously, feel free to edit it as needed.'''
  
  
  == Challenges ==
  
- ...
+ Knowing which elements are inline and which ones are not is important for most linguistic-related process:
  
+  * The segmentation of the document into sentences has to be in part driven from the structural elements.
+ 
+  * Inline elements must remain withing the text so they can be modified if necessary.
+ 
+  * Infering which elements are inline only from the document context is always enough. For example in the following code:
+  
+  {{{<p><em>Special text</em></p>
+ <p>Less special text</p>}}}
+ 
+  there is no programatic way of guessing that <para> is structural, but <em> is an inline element.
