Two ways we could go with that, delete 'form feed' from the prose or add it to the production. Suggest some testing against current implementations, as my feeling is that FF is going to be rare in deployed content and that implementations may vary as to whether they support it or not. I have a feeling that FF will not be supported and that we should remove it from the prose; it adds nothing here.
