Hey all,

 

I ran into a confusing bit of spec, so a little help would be appreciated.
First of all:

 

"The header element must not appear as a descendant of the footer element."

 

But then:

 

"When the footer element contains entire sections, they represent
appendices, indexes, long colophons, verbose license agreements, and other
such content."

 

(so footers can contain sections) ... then:

 

"A header element is intended to usually contain the section's heading"

 

(so headers can be used within sections ... which can appear in footers).

 

 

Did I miss something or is there some unexplained restraint not in the spec?

Greets,
