Hello,

This is my first post on this mailing-list. I used to post on www- 
style but I don't have to read it anymore.

So here is my question / request

The remaining presentational elements i, b and tt, still allowed in  
XHTML 1.x (even Strict), will be absent from XHTML 2.0.
(<http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php? 
title=XHTML&oldid=62427954#The_XHTML_2.0_draft_specification>)

OK for i and b. As for tt, it is perfectly understandable too, but I  
used to use tt for denoting a semantic thing, namely a sidenote/remark

HTML 3.0 used to have such an interesting tag justly called NOTE (see  
<http://blog.empyree.org/?2284-les-bonnes-idees-de-l-html-30>, in  
French). I would request W3C to think about this use.

Or maybe is there an XHTML 2.0 way to denote this? How?

Thank you,
