To echo a question Eliot Kimber asked recently on comp.text.sgml,
what are the rendering expectations for embedded documents?  If
the content is entirely inline (even though the encasing HTML element
may be inferred) is it to be rendered inline, as an inclusion?  or
is every embedded doc to start a new page/window/browser instance?
