Dear WG and ML,

What if more than the two same elements that can occur only once happened with an edit attribute set? For example:

<table>
   <thead edit="deleted">...</thead>
   <thead edit="inserted">...</thead>
   <tbody>
     ...
   </tbody>
</table>

This is invalid since 'thead' can happen once anyway regardless of its attribute set in terms of the schema, correct? One thing that is confusing to me and possibly to browser venders is that there is no problem if you use "changed" or "inserted" as the value of an 'edit' attribute, but there seems to be a structure collaspe if the value is "deleted" or "moved". For example:

<table>
   <tr>
     <td edit="deleted">...</td>
     <td>...</td>
   </tr>
   <tr>
     <td>...</td>
     <td>...</td>
   </tr>
</table>

I know this is "valid", but I can't expect how the table would look like or mean. The draft (*1) gives an example of the valid use of an inline element, but no example for block elements or table elements. I guess it would help if it had one.

Regards,

*1 the draft: XHTML 2.0 - XHTML Edit Attributes Module http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-xhtml2-20050527/mod-edit.html#adef_edit_edit
