Thanks Steve, I spoke to Mike regarding this earlier.
The current plan is that he will get in touch with you to pull something together… longer term I plan to work on something with Mike, in person, in Tokyo when I visit in July.

Cheers, 


Ben

The goals of that specification and mine are the same, I'd worked on both too… Personally, I'd like to hear feedback from both Hixie and Mike on this…

At the time i provided a modded style sheet which removed the issues.  As I also suggested before, if you don't have the time or inclination to update HTML5 Edition for Web Authors I would be happy to take over.
