EDITOR'S RESPONSE: This is an Editor's Response to your comment. If you are
satisfied with this response, please change the state of this bug to CLOSED. If
you have additional information and would like the editor to reconsider, please
reopen this bug. If you would like to escalate the issue to the full HTML
Working Group, please add the TrackerRequest keyword to this bug, and suggest
title and text for the tracker issue; or you may create a tracker issue
yourself, if you are able to do so. For more details, see this document:

Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: It points into some of the hidden user-agent-specific text. I don't
know what to do about that. There are many cases of this in the
author-text-only version of the spec. If there are any egregious cases, and if
you have any good ideas for how to define the term in those cases, let me know.
(For example, if there's a definition for "document's character encoding" that
would actually help you understand this section of the spec, then please do
re-open this bug and let me know what that definition would be!)

Ideally I'd like to hide the links that point into impl text in the author
mode, but I don't have a good way to do that.
