           Summary: I18N-ISSUE-132: pubdates on article

4.4.4 The article element
http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/sections.html#the-article-element

The article element's description contains this note:

--
Note: The time element's pubdate attribute can be used to provide the
publication date for an article element.
--

This note, while interesting, seems out of place? Also, the example given uses
a non-floating time value. Pubdates are often intended as floating date values
that do not change value according to local time zone offset (e.g. Tuesday, 7
May 2012's edition of the New York Times remained rooted in 7 May and is not
shown to be Wednesday's edition just because the reader is in Japan).

Here's the example:

<h1>The Very First Rule of Life</h1>
<p><time pubdate datetime="2009-10-09T14:28-08:00"></time></p>
