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

The words "structure/structural" are used around 43 times in the document, but it seems there is no definition for this concept. It seems obvious at the start, but to avoid endless semantics debate about this concept it would be reasonnable to define in which context/meaning structure is used in XHTML 2.0.

Some people will imply "typographical structure" inherited from the printing industry. Some people will imply "semantics structure" inherited from the linguistics. And maybe others.
