Summary of Issue: Awkward and incomplete wording
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
It\'s understandable that, by not wanting to mandate \"validates\", the wording became awkward.

\"...has elements with complete start and end tags, except as allowed by their specifications, and are nested according to their specifications.\"

It\'s also, in its current form, very much HTML/XML specific. Also, it doesn\'t really drive home the idea of \"semantic/structural\" markup, when this would be a great place to put it in, potentially?

Proposed Change:
A more tech-agnostic and elegant way:

\"follows their specific rules for syntax, grammar, well-formedness, AND uses the most appropriate language constructs to mark up the content.\"

drop the following note, and perhaps give an example: \"in HTML, H1-H6 elements are used to explicitly denote headings, UL is used to mark up unordered lists, etc\"
