"Step 7
...
10. For each element in the elements list, if the element is one of the following:
A description element:

    If this is not the first description element encountered, then the user agent must ignore the element and its child nodes. Stop processing this element ... "
My point is:
This sentence:

"If this is not the first description element encountered, then the user agent must ignore the element and its child nodes."
Is descriptive.

Whereas this sentence:
"Stop processing this element ... "

is imperative following the mode from:
" For each element in the elements list, if the element is one of the following:
A description element:
"

So I would just align the text to be either descriptive or all imperative for consitency.

Thanks.

Hi Marcin,

I missed the following:

Can you clarify what you mean here?
