Thanks for addressing this request.  What Jonathan did helps a lot.

I wasn't sure why you didn't have a list of attributes and elements for 
the text element.  For example, I was trying to figure out whether the 
dir attribute can be used on the text element (to prevent the need for 
adding it to each of the enclosed divs, or indeed adding a div if there 
is only a single 'paragraph'.

I didn't see anything in that section that enlightened me, one way or 
the other.
