You delete the paragraph above that where I wrote that I was referring to
the class attribute of a markup element.

Perhaps you are just pointing out that Ian should not have interpreted it
as CSS attribute.  I do not know what Ian was thinking, but I know that I
was referrring to class  attribute of a markup element.  Grammatically
there was no other correct interpretation of what I wrote.  Then again
semantics of English is not entirely defined by grammar specifications! :-)
