Hi,

The dfn element:

   The dfn element represents the defining instance of a term.
   The paragraph, definition list group, or section that contains
   the dfn element contains the definition for the term given
   by the contents of the dfn element.

Given the definition of "defining term" two paragraphs later, the term of 
the dfn element is not always the contents of the element. I suggest 
replacing the above text with:

   The dfn element represents the defining instance of a term.
   The paragraph, definition list group, or section that contains
   the dfn element contains the definition for the _term_ of
   the dfn element.

Regards,
Simon Pieters
