Ok, yes, it's getting through to me. Still find it a bit of a tangled
description. Is the "ancestors of the del element" important? Perhaps
in the context of that paragraph it can be omitted in the interests of
simplicity and clarity, i.e. just say "del elements and their
descendants must not be counted" (as fulfilling the requirement for
prose content).
