            Bug ID: 20793
           Summary: Is 'aside' related to the nearest ancestor sectioning

           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified

         Component: HTML5 spec

For the 'aside' element the spec says [1]:

  The aside element represents a section of a page that consists of content
that is tangentially related to the content around the aside element, and which
could be considered separate from that content.

Does "around" refer to content of the parenting sectioning element/root, to
content of the parenting element (no matter which) or to any content (whole
document)? Maybe it could be stated more clearly?

Further it says:

  The element can be used […] for other content that is considered separate
from the main content of the page.

Shouldn't it say something like "separate from the main content of the nearest
ancestor sectioning content"?
