Hello ,

This comment is sent from both the CDF WG and the SVG WG.

  Examples usually have the word "example" near their start ("Example:",
  "The following example…," "For example," etc.) and are shown in the
  color maroon, like this paragraph.
  http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-CSS21-20050613/conform.html#q1

Why 'usually'? How then can a non-normative example be distinguished
from normative content. Please clearly mark-up all examples in a
consistent way. Please use document structure rather than color alone to
indicate important information.  Incidentally, "this paragraph" was in
black, not maroon, when using several modern HTML browsers.
