This is my own comment on the html-in-xml draft.

Throughout the document we use green and red boxes to denote proper and
improper usage examples. This is not 'accessible' to people not capable 
of discerning color differences (due to either physical or machine
settings/limitations). If we are to display boxed examples, they should
explicitly describe their conformance either in content or by label. 

Color alone cannot be the arbiter.
