Yep, you're right. I forgot the bnode from step 8.

However, as the inner div has no @about, no @src, no @resource, no 
@href, is not in head or body, and has no @instanceof, in step 4

   * otherwise, if [parent object] is present, [new subject] is set to
     that and the [skip element] flag is set to 'true';

is applied. So [skip element] for this level is 'true'. The evaluation 
context for this inner div contains the incomplete triple 
(dbp:influenced). But it won't be completed because according to step 
12(11), "any [incomplete triple]s within the current context should be 
completed" only if "the [skip element] flag is 'false'".

The same happens with the span elements: no @about, no @src, no 
@resource, no @href, not in head or body, no @instanceof. So [skip 
element] is 'true'. The incomplete triple is passed from parent element. 
But as [skip element] is 'true', it won't be completed.

The result is only the two triples

   _:a foaf:name "Albert Einstein" .
   _:a dbp:dateOfBirth "1879-03-14"^^xsd:date .

The dbp:influenced triple is not completed.

But maybe I missed something again.
