Just as clarification, because I got a little bit lost with this now. Do 
we do this only for ITS in HTML or for ITS in general? So would it end 
up in something like:
"Textual content of element, including content of child elements, but 
excluding attributes" for XML
"Textual content of element, including attributes and child elements." 
for HTML?
Or what is the plan for linking to the HTML Part?

Cheers
Karl
