Hi,
This is a QA Review comment for "XHTML 2.0"

About http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-xhtml2-20060726/

	The document often refers to the notion of block or inline paradigm but it doesn't define it anywhere in the document.

	For example, the following sentence:

		"This element defines content to be block-level but 
		imposes no other presentational idioms on the content, 
		which may otherwise be controlled from a style sheet."

	- What is a block level content? 
	- What is a inline level content?
	- What are their respective meanings?

	It is particulary important because some elements which are purely "semantics" are duplicated because of these two notions. See my other mail on the topic: "Semantics only" elements
