It's in nightly, so just staged for publication. This is why I do these
cherry-picks - I can always revert them. However, I have a question.
This repeating information that is defined in the <main> element. Why is
that so bad to repeat it? In my view, it makes it easier for an author to
find this information.

Thanks,
Silvia.
