The contents of the element must be placed between just after the start 
tag (which might be implied, in certain cases) and just before the end 
tag (which again, might be implied in certain cases).

I wonder about the "just after" and "just before". Is there something in 
the middle that is not just after and just before? I think it might be 
clearer to state, "The contents of the element must be placed between 
the start tag (which might be implied, in certain cases) and  the end 
tag (which again, might be implied in certain cases)." or "The contents 
of the element must be placed after the start tag (which might be 
implied, in certain cases) and before the end tag (which again, might be 
implied in certain cases)."


and what about the word "placed"? That seems to suggest that one could 
put this content somewhere else. I think of it more as the placement 
defines what is and is not the content so how about,

"The content of the element is all the text between the start tag (which 
might be implied, in certain cases) and the end tag (which again, might 
be implied in certain cases)."
