Nice work Michael. It looks fine to me, with only one question; should
we _always_ use the language when establishing plain literals? My
feeling is that we should, but you only have it at the bottom of the
flow, and not on the right. Was that a conscious decision? I.e., do
you feel that @content should behave differently to inline text with
no mark-up?

Actually, just looked again, and I have one more question...the first
step could just be:

  'is @property present (on any element) or @name present (on <meta>)'

could it not? That's essentially how you establish whether you have a
literal. If @property/@name is not present then just exit, i.e., we
don't need to mention URIs and such like.

But other than that, it's very nice. :)
