I'm assuming you mean r1602. It isn't just atom:content, but also all  
Atom XHTML Text Constructs (which, from RFC4287 are atom:title,  
atom:summary, atom:subtitle, and atom:rights, though APP may add more  
to that list (but I don't know about that), so it'll be better to  
reference the section that defines XHTML Text Constructs).
